  • Have sufficient money to support yourself during your stay in New Zealand
  • Hold a passport valid for 3 months beyond the date you intend leaving New Zealand

View more information about the NZeTA.

If you are transiting via another country, please ensure you check their visa requirements as you may require additional visas.

Note: Only use the NZ Immigration website to apply for your NZeTA. There are unscrupulous people charging more than is required when applying through third party websites.
