New Zealand NZETA Travel Visa Information
Passport holders of certain countries and territories do not have to apply for a visa before they travel to NZ but must hold an
NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority).
They can request a NzeTA and visit for up to 3 months as a tourist or for a business travel – if you are a British citizen, up to 6 months.
You must hold this NZeTA before travelling to New Zealand, if you are from a visa waiver country, cruise ship passenger or permanent resident of Australia
With this visa you can:
- Travel to New Zealand
- Pass through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger on the way to or from Australia.
- Pass through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger on the way to another country — if you are from a visa waiver or transit visa waiver country.

- hold a current Australian permanent resident visa that allows you to return to Australia from overseas, or
- regardless of nationality, your immediate or final destination after transiting New Zealand is Australia and you hold a current visa issued by the government of Australia to enter Australia, or
