Request an NZeTA

Use this form to request an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) and pay for an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL).

Mobile App :
The fastest way to request your NZeTA is by downloading our free app to your mobile phone. If you use the app it will take you less than 5 minutes to complete your request.

You can use the app to scan your passport to instantly upload your details and scan your credit or debit card for ease of payment.Download the free app now.

Cost & Processing Time :
Requesting an NZeTA costs NZD $9 through the app or NZD $12 if you use this form. Allow up to 72 hours for processing, although it could take as little as 10 minutes.

You need :
** a valid passport that you will use to travel to New Zealand
** a credit card or debit card (Visa or Mastercard)
** an email address.

The IVL :
If you are entering New Zealand you must also pay an IVL, which funds tourism infrastructure and helps protect our natural environment. You pay the IVL at the same time as you request your NZeTA. The IVL costs NZD $35.
