New Zealand Visa For Argentina, Canada, Hong Kong and Brazilian Citizens


Since October 1, 2019, Argentinian citizens must apply for the New Zealand eTA before traveling to New Zealand for tourism or business purposes before leaving their country of origin. Around 60 visa-exempt citizens are currently eligible to visit New Zealand, including Argentina. Argentine passport holders wishing to enter New Zealand for short-term travel must apply for an NZeTA prior to departure. You can easily apply for a New Zealand eTA online without having to go to a New Zealand consulate or embassy. Although the NZeTA is a required travel authorization, it is not a traditional visa.


  • Passport: The first and foremost thing required is the passport. Without it, you cannot travel to any country. Before filling out the form make sure that your passport is not expiring for at least the next 6 months.
  • Scanned passport size photograph should also be kept.
  • During filling up the form, you will be asked to enter the arrival date as well as the departure date. This is mandatory.
  • Payment: One should have a valid means of online payment. Be its debit card, credit card or the PayPal.
  • Email address: The tourist will be requiring a valid email address because as the application is scrutinized and accepted, the ETA is sent digitally on the email ID mentioned in the form. Though it is advised to take a hard copy of it too while traveling.


From 1 October 2019, Brazilian citizens wishing to visit New Zealand without a visa must apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (New Zealand eTA) prior to departure. New Zealand has also introduced another additional requirement known as International Visitor Tourism and Conservation. Levy NZ (IVL), which is also mandatory for some travelers from 1 October 2019. Brazilian citizens can now apply for their New Zealand Travel Permit online using their passports. Although this Travel Authorization is not a visa, as of October 1, 2019, the NZeTA is mandatory for Brazilians and citizens of 59 other countries wishing to enter New Zealand for a short period of time and for tourism or commercial purposes.
