Effective 1 October 2019, some visitors and transit passengers must have an Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) and pay a subsequent International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) before travelling to New Zealand.
You do not need an NZeTA to travel to New Zealand if you:
Are an Australian citizen travelling on an Australian passport.
Require a New Zealand visa before you travel or already hold a valid visa.
Are a New Zealand citizen travelling on a New Zealand passport, or a foreign passport with an endorsement — for example, a document that states you are a permanent resident or citizen of New Zealand.
You must request an NZeTA before you travel to New Zealand if you are:
A permanent resident of Australia (do not hold an Australian passport).
A cruise ship passenger, regardless of your nationality
Visiting or in transit from a visa waiver country — that is, a country whose passport holders do not need to get a visa before they arrive in New Zealand.
Travelling on a passport from a visa waiver country or a transit visa waiver country, and you will be in transit through Auckland International Airport.
