Travel Advisory


08 Sep 2019

Effective 01 October 2019, the New Zealand Government will require certain nationalities to hold a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) to enter or transit the country, as a new border security measure.  Please take note that the NZeTA does not replace a visa and travelers must still meet all existing entry requirements.

Visitors from 60 visa waiver countries , transit passengers from 24 transit visa waiver countries (except those with Australian or New Zealand Citizenship) and Australian Permanent Residents must hold a NZeTA before travelling to New Zealand.  

Filipino nationals who obtain visas for visiting NZ are not required to secure a NZeTA.  However the NZeTA is required for Filipinos who are to transit NZ without a visa, as the Philippines is one of the 24 transit visa waiver countries.

For a full list of countries whose nationals do not need a NZeTA, and for information on how to apply along with cost and timeframes, please visit the NZ Immigration website at immigration.govt.nz/nzeta. It is highly advised that a request for a NZeTA be made well in advance of your trip to avoid any inconvenience.
