New Zealand Visa For Netherlands Citizens and New Zealand Visa For Italian Citizens

From October 1, 2019, Dutch citizens wishing to experience all that New Zealand has to offer will require a New Zealand e-Travel Permit. Applying for the NZeTA as a Dutch citizen is simple and straightforward. The New Zealand eTA for the Netherlands is valid for 2 years and allows travellers to make multiple stays within the territory for up to 90 consecutive days each. In order to obtain the eTA, applicants must complete the online application form, which takes approximately 10 minutes.

Citizens must answer basic questions about personal, passport, health and security information and pay  International  Conservation and Tourism Visitor Tax, if applicable.

Do Dutch citizens need a visa for New Zealand?

Since October 1, 2019,  Dutch citizens must apply for the New Zealand eTA before leaving their home country. The New Zealand eTA improves border and internal security within the island nation, making the entire border crossing process easier and faster.

Meanwhile, the IVL is a payment required from some travellers to support New Zealand’s infrastructure and protect the country’s natural environment. The NZeTA allows multiple entries during its 2-year validity, while the IVL  only has to be paid once during the life of the eTA. Dutch transit passengers who have a stopover at Auckland International Airport en route to another destination must also apply for an NZeTA.

However, transit passengers will not be charged an IVL when applying for their  New Zealand eTA. It is also worth noting that the same requirements apply to Dutch visitors arriving in New Zealand by air and sea. This means that cruise passengers must also apply for a valid eTA prior to arrival.

Document requirements For New Zealand Visa For Netherlands Citizens

For a successful application to the NZeTA from the Netherlands, applicants are required to provide the documents listed below:

  • Passport, valid for at least 3 months after the intended exit
  • A filled-out online application form for the NZeTA for the Netherlands
  • Debit or credit card for the eTA and IVL payment
  • Valid email address
  • Travel purpose

How long does it take to get the New Zealand eTA from the Netherlands?

In most cases, it takes 1 business day to receive your NZeTA via email. However, please allow up to 3 days for processing in the event that any additional documents are required.

When approved, applicants will receive an email with the NZeTA in PDF format. The authorization will be electronically linked to the traveller’s passport, eliminating the need for visa stamps at the airport upon arrival.


Do Italians need a visa for New Zealand?

Italy is a member of the New Zealand Visa Waiver Program. Italians require a New Zealand eTA from Italy for travel up to 90 days, but not a visa. The NZeTA is the abbreviation for New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority and serves as the official entry document to New Zealand. The NZeTA is also mandatory for short trips to the country. Even cruise passengers are required to apply for an eTA for every stay in New Zealand.

Italians who do not meet the NZeTA requirements must apply for a visa to enter New Zealand.
