New travel requirements for passengers travelling to New Zealand

The NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) is a new border security measure being introduced by the New Zealand Government.

Effective from 1 October 2019, visitors from visa-waiver countries/regions are required to hold an NZeTA before they leave for New Zealand. The NZeTA does not replace a visa; travellers must still meet all existing entry requirements. Please note that travellers from visa waiver or transit visa waiver countries/regions who are in transit through New Zealand are required to hold an NZeTA from 1 October 2019, even if New Zealand is not their final destination.

To ensure that travellers can proceed through all airport checkpoints, we advise customers to plan accordingly and request an NZeTA well in advance of your trip to New Zealand, as it can take up to 72 hours for a request to be processed.
