Embarking on a journey to the pristine landscapes of New Zealand from the United States?

The gateway to your adventure is understanding the visa or Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) requirements for US citizens. Let's dive in.

Fill me in

Do US citizens need a visa or ETA for New Zealand?

US citizens only require a New Zealand ETA to visit the country.

The United States is on New Zealand’s list of 60 visa-exempt countries. As a result, you are not required to go to the embassy to apply for your New Zealand visa. You just need to register for the ETA, which is a simple registration process with fewer requirements than the visa or eVisa.

However, keep in mind that to be eligible for the official program, your stay can't exceed 3 months.

What is the New Zealand ETA?

The New Zealand’s Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) is an electronic visa waiver that grants the right to enter New Zealand multiple times within 2 years.

How to apply for the New Zealand ETA

The application for a New Zealand ETA is straightforward. There are a few ways to apply.

  • Via the official government website: Visit the official NZeTA website and follow the instructions.

  • Via iVisa: If you want an expert to review your application before submitting it, we can help you for a small fee.

Just follow these three steps:

  1. Fill out your info on our platform or app.

  2. Check your details and pay the ETA fees.

  3. Upload any required documents (usually just a copy of your passport bio page) and submit.

Do I need a New Zealand ETA to transit in New Zealand?

If you don't plan to leave the transit lounge at the airport while in New Zealand, you aren't required to have an ETA. If you wish to leave the airport, you must still apply for a New Zealand ETA.

How do I know if my ETA is approved?

We will notify you by email as soon as the New Zealand government approves your ETA.
