If you want to come to New Zealand on holiday or visit your family and friends in New Zealand, you can apply for a General Visitor Visa.

Not all visitors are required to apply for a General Visitor Visa. If you are from a visa waiver country, you only need to apply for an Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA). This generally takes 72 hours to process, so it's crucial that you apply for it before boarding your flight. Otherwise, your airline may refuse to let you on the plane unless you can show them proof of your approved NZeTA.

For individuals applying for the General Visitor Visa, supporting evidence is required to demonstrate genuine intentions. This includes a travel itinerary, leave approval letter, and bank statements.

The General Visitor Visa allows you to stay in New Zealand as a tourist for 3 to 9 months, depending on the conditions granted. You can also study for up to 3 months while you are in the country.



並非所有旅客都需要申請一般訪客簽證。如果您來自免簽證國家,您只需申請「電子旅行授權」Electronic Travel Authority(NZeTA)。電子旅行授權通常需要72小時處理,因此必需要在出發前三天申請,否則航空公司可能拒絕讓您登機。
