Travel Update: New Zealand Electronic Visa

Tour East would like to inform our travel partners, that from 01 October 2019 anyone entering New Zealand now requires a Visa by completing an ETA – Electronic Travel Authority. The ETA’s can now be completed online via New Zealand immigration’s website platform.


Please note, from 1 October 2019, if you do not have an NZeTA you will not be allowed to travel. The only exceptions to this requirement are passengers travelling on a New Zealand or Australian passport, as well as travellers who hold a valid New Zealand visa.

An app is also available via Apple Store or Google Play which reduces the cost and can be faster.

In addition, anyone entering New Zealand from 01 October 2019 also needs to pay the IVL (International Visitor Levy). The levy costs $35 and can be paid at the same time as the ETA. More information about any of the above requirements can be found here via the link below.
