Do I need an eTA for New Zealand?

Currently there are a number of nationalities who can travel to New Zealand without a visa for periods of up to 90 days (including the United States, all European Union member states, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, and Japan). Citizens from the UK can enter for up to six months visa free and Australians can stay in New Zealand indefinitely.

From October 2019, it will be obligatory for citizens of the 60 visa-exempt countries to obtain an eTA online before traveling to New Zealand. The only exception will be citizens of Australia, although Australia permanent residents will also be required to pre-register for an eTA NZ (but not to pay the associated tourist levy).

Other nationalities, which cannot enter without a visa, can apply for a visitor visa for New Zealand. More information is available on the Department of Immigration website.
