Visitors to New Zealand now require an ETA

From 1 October 2019, travellers to New Zealand must have an ETA. An ETA can be applied for via the ETA mobile app or the Immigration NZ website.

The fastest way to request your NZeTA is by downloading a free app from the Immigration NZ Website to your mobile phone. If you use the app it will take you less than 5 minutes to complete your request. You can use the app to scan your passport to instantly upload your details and scan your credit or debit card for ease of payment.
 The cost of the ETA is NZD$9 (ca. 5.50 Euro) for requests made via the mobile app and NZD$12 (ca. 7 Euro) for requests made via the Immigration NZ website. 
 Passengers are advised to apply for their NZeTA at least 72 hours prior to travel.

You will need a valid passport that you will use to travel to New Zealand, a credit card or debit card (Visa or Mastercard), and an email address. Once issued, an ETA is valid for up to two years and can be used for multiple visits to NZ. 
Travellers will pay their International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) of NZD$35 (ca. 20 Euro) at the same time they request their ETA. The IVL funds tourism infrastructure and helps protect New Zealand’s natural environment.
