From 1 October 2019, some international visitors and transit passengers must have an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) before travelling to New Zealand.

New travel rules for New Zealand

The New Zealand Government has introduced a new travel requirement for some visitors (including visa waiver countries such as Germany, Czech Republic and Switzerland) and transit passengers.

It’s called the NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) and travellers need to request theirs via the official mobile app or website. Approval can take up to 72 hours, so get yours before you go.

The NZeTA is required for travel from 1 October 2019.
