When talking about New Zealand, what are the things in your mind? For me, NZ is a wonderful land of nature. I love humble and loving people, which Kiwi has~ And it is not overcrowding where LOHAS travelers would love it. I know quite a number of friends who visited NZ, and some have the chance to join the Work & Travel program in NZ. But for for myself, I have never visited there and I hope to go soon. Yet, we are all stuck at home now due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Well, it can’t stop me preparing my “Travel the world” dream. I have planned few trips that I wish I could go after the epidemic and one of them is to travel to New Zealand. So, I have done some studies and found that we need to apply ETA even Malaysia is listed as one of the visa waiver countries.

New Zealand ETA is like an electronic travel pass for travelers from visa waiver countries. It is first launched in August 2019 and is a mandatory entry document since October 2019.

Meanwhile, there are 2 types of NZ ETA:

1. Visit ETA – For whom are visiting New Zealand for up to 3 months. Regardless you will be arriving NZ by plane or you are flying to NZ to join a cruise trip, as long as you are entering NZ, you need to get this visit ETA.

2. Transit ETA – For those who are passing through New Zealand on your way to another country and do not plan to stay, you would have to apply for transit ETA. Please note that as a transit passenger, you can only travel through Auckland International Airport where you must stay in the transit area of the airport or on board your craft.

FYI, New Zealand ETA is valid for 2 years and can be used for multiple visits. And the great thing is you do not have to walk into embassy to apply the ETA. What you need to do is to apply it online. And here I am going to recommend the agency that I always engage with when applying my visa/ETA – iAdventure Escape Tours And Travel Sdn Bhd.

iAdventure Escape Tours And Travel Sdn Bhd is a registered travel agency. They have a physical center but you don’t have to walk-in in order to apply. So don’t ask me is this legit (like people who doubt me for years since I shared Aus Visa Application with only RM25)! Yes, it is!

Well, NZ ETA is not as cheap as Australia’s one.. It starts from USD 40~~

Now, let’s dive in to apply the New Zealand ETA…

Step 1: Go to and click “Request an ETA”

Step 2:  Fill in your details. Click “Continue” to fill in all the details and “Submit”.

Note: Make sure all are correct before submission.

Step 3: Click “Continue to payment” to make your payment directly.

Note: After payment is made, you will be redirected to the following page. Please remember your reference number. It is recommended to screenshot for reference.

Basically, after these 3 steps above, you will receive a confirmation email, stating that your application is in progress.

The application takes up to 72 hours to complete (depending on the package you take as well) and you will then receive another email update (application success or failure).

If your application is approved, then you can download the ETA through the link provided. I do recommend you to print it out so you can show it if (touch wood) any issue happens when you are entering NZ.

Okay~ That’s all for the sharing this round. Hope this simple guide helps~
