INZ to accept UnionPay payments for online visa applications Sunday, 26 February 2017

From 26 February 2017, INZ will enable online payment by UnionPay debit and credit cards for New Zealand online visa applications.

Currently, UnionPay serves the world’s largest cardholder base. In 2016, the number of tourists from China to New Zealand was nearly 410 thousand, which was expected to increase in the coming year. The opening up of this form of payment will provide more convenient payment service for UnionPay cardholders who apply for visas online.
