New Zealand has brought a big change in its tourism and travel department. The country has made it obligatory for citizens of all 60 visa waiver countries to obtain NZeTA visa by October 2019. NZeTA stands for New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority which was launched by the New Zealand Government’s Immigration Agency after July 2019. The ETA program includes all the cruise and airline crew that travel to New Zealand. They have to hold Crew New Zealand ETA before traveling to the country.
The citizens of any country who will enter New Zealand via cruise ship can apply for ETA visa on arriving. But the citizens who will be traveling via air, they must be from visa waiver or visa-free country to get ETA on arrival. The ETA visa is valid for 2 years and it can be used for multiple visits during its legality. Travelers can obtain ETA for New Zealand by completing a simple online application form. They can apply from their mobile, tablet, as well as PC. And can receive the ETA visa in their email inbox.
According to the New Zealand ETA official website, the ETA visa is valid for everyone who wants to travel to the country. It includes a holiday visa, some student visa, and short term work visa. They have to pay admission fees in the form of the ETA visa to enter the country. New Zealand will accept cards from 130 countries which were earlier not accepted by the country. And 24/7 customer support will make this initiative successful and lucrative.
