If you plan to visit New Zealand for a short period, you must request an NZeTA before you travel if you:
travel on a passport from a country on the list of visa waiver countries and territories
leave for New Zealand on or after 1 October 2019, and
are visiting for up to 3 months — or, if you are a British citizen, up to 6 months.
Approved NZeTA valid up to 2 years.
* Travel to New Zealand without first applying for a visa — if you are from a visa waiver country, a cruise ship passenger or a permanent resident of Australia.
* Pass through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger on the way to or from Australia.
* Pass through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger on the way to another country — if you are from a visa waiver or transit visa waiver country.
* Get someone to help you with your NZeTA request — you will need to tell them about your criminal conviction history and whether you are seeking medical treatment in New Zealand.
