NZeTA terms of use

Information on our terms of use for requesting an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority).

You must hold an NZeTA

You must hold an NZeTA if you are boarding a flight or cruise that leaves for New Zealand. It does not guarantee you will be able to travel or enter New Zealand.

Travellers who do not need an NZeTA

You cannot cancel your NZeTA request

Once you submit your NZeTA request you cannot cancel it, so make sure your details are correct.

Your fee is normally not refundable

The NZeTA fee and International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) are normally not refundable.

We will not give you a refund if:

  • we refuse your request
  • you accidentally request multiple NZeTAs for a single traveller
  • you enter your details incorrectly and need to submit a new NZeTA request
  • you decide not to travel to New Zealand.

We may refund the NZeTA fee and IVL if there is a technical fault, such as hardware failures or software bugs, with Immigration New Zealand’s systems.

You will not get a refund if you are not allowed to enter New Zealand or if you are not able to travel.

You will get an email from us

We will send an email and a receipt to the email address you provided within a few minutes of submitting your request.

If you do not receive an email, do not immediately reapply. Check your NZeTA status online.
