Citizens of New Zealand are permitted to stay in Thailand up to 30 days if entering via international airport and up to 15 days if entering through a land border checkpoint from a neighboring country (Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia) under the Visa Exemption Rule .

If you are planning international travel at this time, please read our COVID-19 related travel advice here , alongside our destination specific travel advice below.
Do not travel
Do not travel to the southernmost provinces along the Thailand-Malaysia border, including Narathiwat, Yala, Pattani and Songkhla due to ongoing politically-motivated and criminal violence, which occurs on an almost daily basis. The Thai Government has warned tourists not to travel to these areas (level 4 of 4).
Exercise increased caution
Exercise increased caution elsewhere in Thailand due to the potential for civil unrest and threat of terrorism (level 2 of 4).
Political Tension/Civil unrest The political situation in Thailand can be unpredictable. In recent years, Thailand has experienced regular large-scale political demonstrations and unrest in Bangkok and other cities in Thailand. Violent incidents in the vicinity of these demonstrations have resulted in serious injuries.
New Zealanders throughout Thailand are advised to avoid any protests, demonstrations, and large gatherings, as even those intended to be peaceful have the potential to quickly turn violent.
New Zealanders throughout Thailand are advised to exercise due caution and monitor the media to stay informed of developments. We recommend adhering to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
New Zealanders in Thailand should be wary of making political statements in public and on social media or sharing articles online that could been seen as portraying Thailand negatively or making accusations about individuals. There are also strong ‘lese majeste’ laws in place which make it a criminal offence to criticise or defame the monarchy in any form, including on social media. These laws are strictly enforced in Thailand and it is strongly advised that New Zealanders in Thailand refrain from making any public statements about the monarchy including posting, commenting or liking items about the monarchy on social media.
Terrorism There is an ongoing threat of terrorism in Thailand, including in Bangkok and Phuket. Previous incidents involving explosive devices have occurred in Bangkok and other popular tourist destinations, including Phuket and Koh Samui.
In August 2019, several small explosions occurred in various locations in Bangkok resulting in some injuries. In August 2016, there were multiple explosions in Thailand. These occurred in a number of tourist areas, including Hua Hin, Phuket, Phang Nga, Trang, and Surat Thani and resulted in casualties. On 17 August 2015, an explosion near the Erawan Shrine in central Bangkok killed at least 20 people and injured many more. Further incidents are possible.
New Zealanders are advised to exercise a high degree of personal security awareness throughout Thailand. Particular care should be taken in public and commercial areas. Possible terrorism targets include (but are not limited to) landmarks or places known to be frequented by expatriates or foreign tourists, public transport facilities, hotels, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, tourist resorts, shopping areas, markets, banks, embassies, and places of worship. Thai authorities have previously warned of the possibility of attacks to coincide with symbolic dates or holidays.
Local travel There is an ongoing threat of violence in the southernmost provinces of Narathiwat, Yala, Pattani and Songkhla. Bombings and shootings are common in these provinces and over 6,500 people have been killed in an ongoing insurgency since 2004. Foreigners have been caught up in this violence in the past.
Sporadic conflict near the Thai-Myanmar border occurs between the Myanmar military and armed opposition groups as well as between Thai security forces and armed criminal groups (such as drug traffickers). Armed clashes may result in border closures at short notice.
Crime Petty crime such as bag snatching and pickpocketing, especially from thieves on motorbikes or in open transport like tuk tuks, occurs in Thailand and is common in tourist areas, in larger cities and on public transport. We advise New Zealanders to be alert to their surroundings at all times and take steps to safeguard and secure their personal belongings.
Drink spiking has been reported in tourist destinations around Thailand, with both male and female victims. Be careful about taking drinks from strangers and at bars, clubs and parties, or leaving your drinks unattended, particularly in Phuket and Krabi provinces, around Koh Samui, Koh Tao, Pattaya and at the Full Moon party on Koh Pha Ngan, where drug related sexual assaults have been reported.
Transport Safety Road safety is a significant issue in Thailand. Road accidents occur frequently, often causing death or serious injury. Motorcyclists and pedestrians are most at risk. Be extra vigilant during holiday periods, including Western New Year (January 1) and Songkran (Thai New Year, mid-April), as drunk driving and accidents are much more frequent during these periods. Do not drink and drive, or drink and ride. If you are walking, use overhead walkways whenever possible. Consider carefully the safety standards of any vehicle and any accompanying equipment, such as helmets, you may hire.
Passenger boat accidents have occurred, often due to overloading or poor maintenance of vessels. Consider carefully the safety standards of any vessel and do not board any vessel which appear overloaded.
General travel advice New Zealanders travelling or living in Thailand should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place that includes provision for medical evacuation by air.
It is a legal requirement to carry a form of identification with you at all times, that proves your legal status in Thailand. Failure to produce your passport or a photocopy of relevant pages could result in a fine or arrest.
Penalties for possession, use or trafficking of illegal drugs are severe and can include lengthy imprisonment or fines.
In January 2018, Thai authorities introduced a smoking ban on beaches in certain tourist areas, including in Petchaburi, Pattaya, Phuket, Prachuap Kirikan, Chon Buri and Songkhla provinces. Those caught smoking in non-designated areas could be fined or face imprisonment.
Making a critical or defamatory comment about the Royal Family, including on social media is punishable by a prison sentence in Thailand. Travellers should maintain respectful behaviour around all images of the Royal Family, including on money.
Exercise caution in relation to offers of employment that appear ‘too good to be true’. There have been a number of cases where victims have been trafficked into online scamming or other fraudulent activity, with poor pay and living conditions, restrictions on movement, and the possibility of severe mistreatment.
Thailand has been experiencing poor air quality and high PM2.5 levels in urban areas and Bangkok in particular. This may aggravate bronchial, sinus or asthma conditions. Children, the elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions may be especially affected. Latest reports on air quality levels can be obtained from the World Air Quality Index website.
New Zealanders in Thailand are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Latest Thailand Entry Requirements
After two years of dealing with Covid, international travel is returning to normal. To help welcome visitors back to the Land of Smiles, the Thai government lifted its final restrictions on July 1st, 2022.
From July 1st, the following changes have been implemented for all international travelers.
- Foreigners do not need to show proof of Covid Insurance.
- All mandatory hotel quarantine has been removed.
- Thailand Pass is no longer required for foreign travelers entering Thailand.
- Vaccinated travelers do not need to provide proof of vaccination to Thai authorities before arriving.
- Unvaccinated travelers (including children traveling with unvaccinated parents) will need to complete an RT-PCR or Professional Antigen Test (Pro-ATK) 72 hours before departing for Thailand. Proof does not need to be uploaded before traveling.
- Airlines and Thai Immigration will do random checks to confirm travelers meet Covid prevention requirements (vaccination or Covid test).
Below is a full list of what international travelers need before entering Thailand.

Passport Validity / Visas
The first thing to check before planning to travel to Thailand is the validity of your passport. International travel requires that your passport is not expiring within six months of your travel date. If you have less than six months left on your passport, you cannot enter Thailand.
If you are planning to travel in the future, check your passport early so you know if you need to apply for a new one or not. It is best to check with your local embassy about how long it will take to receive your new passport. As people look to travel again, passport departments are swamped with new applications and this is causing a backlog in many countries.
There are several visas available to foreigners who are planning to visit Thailand. The visa you need will depend on where you are from, your purpose of travel, and how long you intend to stay.
A foreign visitor may enter Thailand under the Visa Exemption Program . Nationalities under the Visa Exemption Program may enter Thailand without a visa from a Thai Embassy or Consulate.
Upon arriving in Thailand, most nationalities who are part of the Visa Exemption Program may stay for up to 30 days. Certain nationalities can arrive as part of this program, but for a shorter time. It is best to check the country exemption list and confirm how long you can visit Thailand without needing to apply for a Visa.
Tourists arriving under visa exemption are eligible to extend their stay for up to a further 30 days by visiting a local Thai Immigration Office. The cost to extend is approximately 2000 baht.
There is often confusion about Visa Exemption and “Visa on Arrival”. Visa on Arrival is a 15-day visa for travelers from India, China, and 16 other countries. If you do not find your country on the Visa Exemption list, it is best to check the Visa on Arrival list.
There are some important things to note for Visa on Arrival:
- A passport must be valid for at least 30 days.
- The purpose of the visit is strictly tourist.
- A visitor must show an address in Thailand where they will be staying.
- A traveler must have a confirmed return flight.
- Must show proof of funds to the value of 10,000 baht per person or 20,000 baht for a family.
- A fee of 2000 baht is paid on arrival. The fee must be paid in cash and in Thai baht.
Tourist Visa and Special Tourist Visa (STV)
Foreigners may also apply for a Tourist Visa from a Thai embassy or consulate. There is the normal 60-day tourist visa that can be extended for additional 30 days, or the 90-day Special Tourist Visa (STV), which can be extended for 90 days twice at a local immigration office. There are certain requirements needed for the STV, but it allows a visitor to potentially stay in Thailand for 9 months. The Special Tourist Visa is currently scheduled to halt applications in September.
Contact your local Thai Embassy to verify what documents are needed to complete the process. When your visa is approved, the Embassy will place a sticker on your passport, so allow time for potential postage.
For those entering Thailand for a different purpose of stay, they need to obtain a Thai visa from their local Thai Embassy or Consulate prior to coming to Thailand.
Foreigners may apply for a wide range of long-term non-immigrant visas:
- Non-immigrant B Visa – for conducting business or employment
- Non-immigrant O visa – for visiting Thai spouse and family
- Non-immigrant ED visa – for students of recognized institutions in Thailand and their Parents or Legal guardian
- Non-immigrant O retirement visa – for those who wish to retire in Thailand
- Non-immigrant OA and OX visa – for those who wish to obtain a Thailand retirement visa for a long stay (it differs from type O visa)
The above visas can be organized at a local Thai Embassy or Consulate. The paperwork can be quite involved, but there are companies that can help.
Siam Legal International is a reputable company in Thailand that has offered visa assistance to foreign visitors for years. They are well versed in Thai immigration policies and processes. If you would like to streamline your long-term stay in Thailand, it is worth contacting them.
Thai Elite Visa
If you wish to make Thailand easily accessible for many years to come or are perhaps thinking of relocating permanently, it is worth having a look at the Thai Elite Visa.
The Thai Elite Visa allows foreign citizens to live in Thailand for 5, 10, or even 20 years. Thai Elite members do not need to worry about some of the eligibility criteria that are needed when applying for other long-term visas.
The Thai Elite visa is an exclusive visa that offers a host of benefits to holders. If you want to enjoy “Thai life” for the long term, you can read more about the Thai Elite Visa .
Proof of Vaccine or Testing
How a visitor enters Thailand will still depend on their vaccination status.
Vaccinated travelers do not need to provide proof of vaccination to Thai authorities before arriving. A vaccinated traveler will need to have a copy of their vaccination certificate either printed or on a digital device and be able to present it if asked.
Thailand does not require visitors to have had a third booster shot. 2 shots (1 shot for Jansen) is considered fully vaccinated and accepted.
Unvaccinated travelers will need to complete an RT-PCR test or Professional Antigen Test (Pro-ATK) within 72 hours before boarding a flight in their departure country. They will need to have a copy of the test result and be able to present it if asked.
The RT-PCR and Pro-ATK test must be completed by a medical professional and a test report received. The home ATK (RAT) self-test is not acceptable for entering Thailand.
Vaccination and Testing for Children
The testing requirement for children under 18 depends on the vaccination status of their parents. Children traveling with vaccinated parents do not need to complete any RT-PCR or Pro-ATK test before entering Thailand. Children traveling with unvaccinated parents will need to complete the same test as their parents within 72 hours of departing their home country.
It is important to note that many airlines are still asking for proof of vaccination or a Covid test before boarding flights. If you cannot produce one of these documents, you might not board the flight.
Though foreigners no longer need to provide evidence of testing or vaccination prior to arriving in Thailand, they are still required. Thai authorities are conducting random checks of international passengers and if a vaccination certificate or test result cannot be shown, a visitor will not be allowed to enter Thailand.
Insurance has become a dirty word during Covid. Seasoned travelers have always understood the importance of having comprehensive Travel Insurance when traveling abroad. Travel insurance protected travelers from unexpected incidents like:
- Medical emergencies
- Personal injury & accidents
- Missed or delayed flights
- Damage to belongings
- Lost luggage
It was one of those things that people hoped they would never need but regretted not having when needed.
During the Pandemic, proof of insurance became mandatory when visiting countries like Thailand. Over time, people stopped referring to insurance as “Travel Insurance” and always referred to it as “Covid Insurance”. Because you had to have it, it was another hoop to jump through.
The good news is that you no longer need to provide proof of “Covid Insurance” to enter Thailand. But it is recommended because all the things listed above can still happen, and Covid has not disappeared completely.
Foreign visitors are not eligible for free medical care in Thailand if something should happen. Whether it be an accident or personal injury, if a visitor needs medical help, or has a canceled flight, they will need to cover any expenses themselves. Depending on the severity, this could be hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.
Buying good Travel Insurance shouldn’t break the bank. Protecting yourself is cheaper than medical bills, new flights, and replacing lost luggage.
You can buy Travel Insurance from many companies. But if you are looking for coverage that is designed for Thailand, is trusted by Thai authorities and medical institutions, and offers a helpline with people who speak the local language and know the country’s procedures, it is worth checking out AXA Thailand .
Their policies are well priced, straightforward, offer many benefits to its customers, and can be approved in minutes.

Hotel and Proof of Address Updates
Previously, a foreign visitor would complete an Arrival Card (TM6) before entering Thailand. This requirement has been temporarily removed as part of a new initiative by the Thai government.
A visitor no longer needs to provide proof of a hotel booking before departing their country, but will still need to provide an address when passing through Passport Control in Thailand. This address can be a hotel, home, or friend’s address.
This is especially true with people arriving on a pre-approved visa from a Thai Embassy or Consulate.
From July 1, travelers are no longer required to book a SHA+ hotel and undergo an RT-PCR test on arrival. Most hotels have removed their SHA+ quarantine packages, but you will still see the SHA+ badge displayed on hotels.
It is recommended to browse hotels in Thailand on Agoda.com before arriving as it is easier to organize transport to your first night’s rest if pre-booked.
From July 1st, 2022, foreign travelers no longer need to apply for a Thailand Pass before entering Thailand. The system is still in place but is now a platform where visitors can notify the Thai authorities and medical facilities if they are diagnosed positive for Covid during their stay.
If you need to access the Thailand Pass system while in Thailand, please visit https://tp.consular.go.th/ and register by filling in your personal details on the Thailand Pass registration page.
Travelers do not need to provide any proof of flights before leaving their home country.
There is a lot of discussion about whether a return flight needs to be booked when entering Thailand. Technically, all visitors should have a return flight booked. However, you will not always be asked to present evidence of a return flight.
If a visitor is entering Thailand with a pre-approved visa, or Visa on Arrival, they will often be asked to present details of their exit flight. Sometimes a visitor did not have a return flight and had to book a flight on the spot before being processed through Passport Control. To avoid this, it is best to book an exit flight that can be changed. You can always change your plans once in Thailand.
There are no longer any restrictions on domestic flights and travel. When entering Thailand at an international terminal, a traveler is free to transit to a domestic flight right away. “Sealed” flights have been removed.
Domestic airlines will not always ask for proof, but it is best to have your vaccination certificate or Covid test result on hand in case you are asked to show it.
Siam Legal has received reports from potential clients that some hospitals are creating difficulties for them until full payment is made for their medical expenses. Also, foreigners have allegedly been threatened with lawsuits for not settling their medical bills before being discharged. Using out-of-country policies can be problematic. We recommend using insurance providers headquartered inside Thailand with a proper cover to avoid any undesirable outcomes.
Siam Legal International, a premier law firm in Thailand, recommends purchasing the proper insurance and so endorses AXA Insurance for your travel to Thailand insurance needs.
HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT POINTS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE PURCHASING TRAVEL INSURANCE
- Please review the details of any insurance before purchasing to understand if the policy has adequate cover. Cheap policies with inadequate levels of cover can lead to significant personal liability, and scenarios where policy holders incur hundreds of thousands of baht in out-of-pocket medical expenses have been reported. There are significant financial risks to being underinsured during your stay in Thailand.
- These policies do not cover medical costs from accidents (like motorcycle accidents) or common unexpected illnesses (common fever or food poisoning). Best to pay a few baht more for the peace of mind that comes from having proper coverage.
- AXA covers medical expenses (outpatient and inpatient) for accidents and illnesses, including COVID-19. Other insurance coverage might not.
- AXA also covers telemedicine and teleconsultation, which may be required during the quarantine period of any traveler.
Thai hospital staff are familiar with AXA cover, which should prevent any inconvenience during hospital admission or medical treatment from your hotel room. AXA Thailand also offers 24/7 local support during your stay in Thailand.

How to Obtain Travel Insurance
Though COVID-19 insurance is no longer mandatory for entry to Thailand, it is recommended to have comprehensive Travel insurance for the duration of your stay. Good travel insurance covers not only medical expenses relating to Covid but also accident cover, personal damage, loss of possessions, and missed or delayed flights.
It is best to purchase insurance before you travel. The easiest way to buy your policy is online through a reputable insurance provider. The insurance company will provide you with the all-important certificate of cover that you can present to authorities or medical professionals if you need to make a claim.
You may also be asked to present this certificate to the airline before they will allow you to onboard. It’s quick and easy to do online. You can choose your length of policy from 7, 15, 30, 60 days, and 180 days. Just make sure that the policy covers your entire period of stay in Thailand as foreigners are not eligible for free medical care in Thailand and insurance companies will not cover claims for existing conditions.
You may purchase AXA COVID-19 travel insurance within a few minutes. Check them below.

Check you have signed your passport
Your passport is not valid unless you have signed it on page 3. All adults, and children aged 10 and over, must sign their passport.
If you are unable to sign your passport, you need to get an endorsement on the observation page (page 4) of your passport.
Check you have enough empty visa pages
If you travel often, your passport may have been stamped many times.
If your passport does not have at least 1 empty visa page, or pages with enough room to place a stamp, you may be refused entry and your travel could be delayed.
Check your passport is not damaged
Damage to your passport may affect your photo and the performance of the security chip that contains your personal information.
If your passport is water damaged, ripped, or in bad condition, you may be refused entry to a country.
You need to apply for a new passport if your current passport is damaged.

NEW ZEALAND VISA FOR THE CITIZENS OF THAILAND
IMPORTANT: in iVisa, we're not allowed to offer you the e-Visa to New Zealand if you're from Thailand at the moment, but we can help you with some useful information to travel there. Thai citizens now do need a Consular Tourist Visa to travel to New Zealand.
The citizens of Thailand are required to go to an embassy when they want to travel to New Zealand. If you are a Thai citizen, you could apply online with iVisa in the future. The application process is entirely online, and iVisa makes things very easy for you. All you need is a few documents and 20 minutes of your time. iVisa will handle the rest.
Learn more about this upcoming document with the information below.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
I'm from thailand, do i need a visa to enter new zealand.
Yes, you do. Unfortunately, iVisa doesn't offer the online version of this visa, but we're working hard to give you this option in the future. By now, you can apply for a consular visa.
How long can I stay in New Zealand if I'm from Thailand?
If you're from Thailand, you can stay in New Zealand for 90 days Per Entry
What are the requirements?
The requirements for Thai citizens are the same as for every other nationality. iVisa does most of the hard work for you, but you still have to provide some documents and some information so that iVisa will have everything it needs to expedite the process. Here is the complete list:
Passport – Thai people who apply online need to have a valid passport. Also, you need to make sure that the document is valid for at least another 3 months from your date of departure from New Zealand.
Digital photo – the picture needs to be as recent as possible and meet all the proper guidelines for a passport photo.
Means of payment – iVisa requires that you make the payment before completing the online form. You can do that using a credit/debit card, but you can also pay with PayPal.
Email address – iVisa will send you the visa via email in PDF format. Print at least two copies of it.
Means of financial self-support – once you arrive in New Zealand, you need to prove that you can sustain yourself financially during your trip.
Return flight ticket – You may be asked to show a return flight ticket once you arrive. If you do not have this ticket, you need to prove that you have the money to buy one.
How long is this e-Visa valid for?
If you're from Thailand, your ETA expires 2 years after issued
What are the processing times and prices for this document?
Keep in mind that you're able to select one of the following options with iVisa:
- Standard processing – You will receive your New Zealand ETA in 2 days , as long as you pay USD $107.99
- Rush processing – your ETA will be sucessfully processed in 6 hours , but the total price you have to pay is more expensive. It is USD $167.99
- Super Rush processing – with this alternative you have to wait 2 hours for your application to be ready. As you can guess, this is the most expensive alternative. The total price is USD $240.99 .
All the service fees charged by iVisa are included in the options above. You should keep in mind that iVisa does not practice hidden charges or surcharges
How much time do I need to apply?
You'll probably need no more than 20 minutes.
How to apply?
While most people hate application forms, you will enjoy this one. That's because the application form created by iVisa is short and simple. Furthermore, if you need some help completing it, iVisa provides excellent customer support . The service is available 24/7 and is free of charge.
There are three steps you need to complete:
The first one is about your personal information and processing time. You need to fill in your name, address, and so on. As for processing time, it determines the cost of your New Zealand visa , so make sure that you take a look at the fees for each one.
Step two is based on payment and revision. The revision is often underestimated, but you need to make sure that all the information you provide is 100% accurate and correct. Otherwise, your visa could be invalidated. Even a single small mistake can make you repeat the process.
Lastly, during step three you need to upload the documents iVisa asks of you. That should not be difficult since you get a list of everything you need to provide. Once step three is complete, you can submit your application and then wait.
The bottom line is that the New Zealand visa for the citizens of Thailand is easy to obtain. When you apply online , the process quick and easy. iVisa makes sure of that. Your visa is valid for 18 months from the issue, and you can stay up to 9 months in New Zealand.
How many times can I enter New Zealand?
If you're from Thailand, you'll receive a Multiple Entry e-Visa.
Do I need a New Zealand visa if I'm in the transit lounge?
Yes, you'll probably need a visa even if you're in the transit area. That's why we highly recommend you contact the Embassy first in order to avoid any issue before planning your trip.
How does the New Zealand ETA look like?
Where can I read more information about the New Zealand ETA?
It's ok if you still have doubts about the New Zealand ETA , that's why we offer you two options to solve them. First, you can contact iVisa’s customer service center via online chat or phone 24/7.
And second, you can also read more about this document on this page , so don't lose the chance to get more information about this exotic country.

- Before you travel to New Zealand
To board your flight or cruise to New Zealand you need a valid passport or travel document, and have the right visa or an NZeTA.
Your journey to New Zealand
Protect yourself from immigration scams, new zealand electronic travel authority (nzeta), check if you need an nzeta or visa, travellers who do not need an nzeta, arriving by cruise ship, transit passengers, visa waiver countries and territories, transit visa waiver countries, paying the international visitor conservation and tourism levy (ivl).
Arriving in New Zealand
- If you are a premium loyalty programme member
- Visiting New Zealand on business
Checking in for your trip
When you check in you must show that you:
- have a valid passport or travel document, and
- hold the right visa or an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority).
Australian and New Zealand citizens do not need a visa or an NZeTA.
Check your passport
You may not be allowed to check in if your passport is not valid for travel to New Zealand. Check that it will not expire until:
- 3 months after the date you plan to leave New Zealand, or
- 1 month after the date you plan to leave New Zealand — if your passport was issued by a country that has a New Zealand embassy or consulate that issues passports of that country.
Embassies - Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade
If you live in New Zealand permanently — for example, if you have a resident visa — your passport only needs to be valid for travel to New Zealand.
Make sure that your passport has not been:
- reported as lost or stolen, or
- invalidated by the government that issued it.
If you need an NZeTA
You must hold an NZeTA if you are boarding a flight or cruise that leaves for New Zealand, and you:
- are visiting on a passport from a visa waiver country — that is, a country whose passport holders do not need to get a visa before they travel to New Zealand
- are a cruise ship passenger
- are passing through Auckland International Airport to another country and travelling on a passport from a visa waiver country or a transit visa waiver country
- are passing through Auckland International Airport as a transit passenger to or from Australia, or
- have a permanent resident visa for Australia that lets you return to Australia from another country.
You do not need an NZeTA if you:
- hold a visa for New Zealand, or
- are an Australian or New Zealand citizen.
Permanent residents of visa waiver countries
Holding a permanent resident visa for a visa waiver country is not evidence of your citizenship.
If you hold a Permanent Resident Card (green card) for the USA (a visa waiver country) you would still need a visa to travel to New Zealand — unless the passport you hold is from a visa waiver country. Your eligibility to travel to New Zealand without a visa depends on the passport that you are travelling on.
If you intend to travel to New Zealand on a passport issued by a visa waiver country you:
- may travel to New Zealand without applying for a visa first
- still must get an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) before you travel.
If you are going to travel to New Zealand on a passport from a country not on the visa waiver list, you need a visa before you travel.
Requesting an NZeTA
You request an NZeTA using our mobile app or online form. You may also need to pay an International Visitor Tourism and Conservation Levy (IVL).
Information about NZeTA
Paying the International Visitor Tourism and Conservation Levy
Correct errors on your NZeTA
After your NZeTA is approved, you can only correct some of the details such as your:
- passport number — for example, if you had to replace your passport
- email address, or
- small spelling mistakes or numerical errors.
Use our online form to request these changes to your NZeTA.
How to request a change to your NZeTA
If you want to make other changes, you must request a new NZeTA.
If you have a visa to come to New Zealand
If you have a visa for New Zealand, before you leave, check that:
- your passport details match the details on your eVisa (if you have an eVisa), and
- you have the right visa for what you plan to do in New Zealand.
Contact us immediately if there is an error in the details listed in your eVisa.
If you travel on a different passport
If you do not plan to use the same passport to travel to New Zealand that you used when you applied for your visa, you must apply to transfer your visa to the new passport before you travel. Your visa details are linked to the passport you used to apply so if they do not match, your travel may be delayed.

Check your visa conditions
Check your visa to find out what the conditions are. You may not be allowed to enter New Zealand if you cannot provide evidence that you meet the conditions of your visa. For example, the money you must have to live on in New Zealand can vary depending on the visa you have.
Check the conditions of your visa
Bring evidence to support your travel
Gather the documents you need. Bring with you:
- a copy of your eVisa letter (unless you have a visa label in the passport you are travelling on), and
- evidence that you can meet the conditions of your visa — for example you can use:
- your travel ticket to show that you are planning to leave New Zealand, and
- bank statements to show that you have enough money to live on while you are here.
Do not buy your ticket before we grant you a visa or your application is approved in principle. You may lose the cost of your ticket or have to rearrange your travel if there is a delay in processing your application or we do not grant you a visa.

Before you board your plane or cruise ship

Checking your reasons for travelling
As well as checking your passport and visa, we check that you have a genuine reason for coming to New Zealand.
Genuine intentions to visit, study or work in New Zealand
If you do not answer the questions truthfully, you may not be allowed to come here.
If you are refused entry to New Zealand
We may want to see your ticket showing when you will leave New Zealand. We may ask to see other travel tickets or visas if you leave to go to a country that you:
- need to have a visa or onward travel ticket for, or
- are not a citizen of — you need to show that you have the right to enter that country.
We do not need to see this if:
- your eVisa says 'return/onward travel not required'
- your eVisa says 'the holder of this visa is sponsored', or
- you hold a current resident or permanent resident visa for New Zealand.
Supporting yourself in New Zealand
We may want to see evidence of how you will support yourself financially while you are in New Zealand.
We may want to check that you are of good character and will comply with the conditions of your visa. This could include questions about any convictions you have or whether you have been deported from another country.
