Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Unsure about whether to apply for an NZeTA through us, or unsure what an NZeTA is? This page includes answers to most commonly asked questions people have both before and after they apply. If you have a question that isn’t covered on this list, please contact us.

An eTA is an Electronic Travel Authority, which you will need if you want to transit or travel to New Zealand for up to 3 months. For a selected list of countries, you no longer have to go through the long visa process and an eTA is sufficient. An eTA is easier to get and processing times are much smaller. You can read more details and check if you pre-qualify on our Eligibility Requirements Page.

This is super easy to check and it depends on your nationality and the country which issued your travel documents. Please check the list on our Eligibility Requirements Page.

You will find most of the information needed on your passport or travel documents. At the same time, to finish the application, you will also need a valid credit/debit card.

We try to offer the response as soon as possible. For most applications, the waiting time is around 10 minutes. In rare particular situations, it can take up to 72 hours to get an update, but do not worry we will notify you and offer support as well, during the whole process.

Please note passengers transiting New Zealand via air will need an eTA or a visa, regardless of the length of stay in New Zealand. At the same time, even New Zealand residents travelling on a foreign passport will need an endorsement of New Zealand citizenship in the foreign passport.

We offer a complete service for a one-time fee which includes extensive customer support, all the government taxes, and levy taxes as well. We also offer you on-point information and all the guidance you will need, for you to successfully submit your eTA. Our packages start at 88$ and we accommodate various travel needs, including a super-fast processing option: https://nzeta.co/pricing/

If this unwanted situation occurs, which is rare, we offer one free courtesy re-application. – but do try to first address the reason which triggered the refusal of the initial submission.
