New Zealand’s New Rules on Visit Visa
Commencing from 1 Oct 2019, New Zealand Immigration will start demanding a new Travel Authority document from tourists or travels from the selected sixty visa waiver countries. It comprises the United States of America and Canada, to appeal for and receive a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority Visa shortly known as NZeTA visa. This NZeTA visa, which was initially started in July 2019, and it is assumed to impact approximately 1.5 million foreign travelers in a year who do not need visas presently, so it was hectic for them.
Travelers or tourists will not require to go to a consulate or embassy to obtain this New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority Visa; instead, they will be requested to fill out an online appeal form that the eTA states it only takes a few minutes to complete the form and approximately 10 minutes to be processed. Many questions about some personal details such as full name, birth date, address, and travel schedules, so applicants need to enter all the above information requested.
The visa costs are NZD12, which is equal to less than USD 8 and CAD 11 when you apply through online and NZD 9 which is equal to less than USD 6 and CAD 8 when you apply through the NZeTA app. This visa fee does not cover Tourism Levy and International Visitor Conservation of New Zealand, which is NZD 35 and paid at the meantime when you are applying to NZeTA. Once accepted, the NZeTA visa is valid for a tenure of two years and can be utilized for several visits.
