Hotel Information & Travel

Important Travel Information: New Zealand Travel Authority

As of October 1st, 2019, all travelers entering New Zealand from visa waiver countries must complete an online application to obtain what is called a NZeTA, or a New Zealand Electronic Authority, in order to enter the country. Once the application has been completed, the NZeTA will be valid for 2 years and can be used for multiple visits. The cost of this application is $9 NZD if done by mobile app and $12 NZD if completed on the web. The application should take less than 20 minutes to complete.

Additionally, depending on the passport you are traveling on, your reason for traveling to New Zealand, and the visa you’ve applied for, you may be asked to make a payment of $35 NZD towards the New Zealand International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL). The IVL is applied to maintaining the facilities and natural environment of New Zealand; you can find more information on the kinds of projects the levy will be used to fund here. The IVL will be determined at the time of your application. Please see other information and conditions for this levy here.

To complete the application process for both the NZeTA and the IVL, you will need a valid passport, credit or debit card and an email address. Please click here to begin the application (mobile app and web version available). Once you’ve complete the NZeTA application, please allow for 72 hours but be aware that it could take as little as 10 minutes. All of the information listed in this email can be found at

We strongly recommend that you complete this application at your earliest convenience to ensure that you are all set in advance. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Maggie Mojab at We look forward to seeing you in New Zealand!
