Consular costs of the New Zealand visa

The consular part is levied by the New Zealand Immigration Department. The immigration service is responsible for ensuring that each visa application is carefully assessed. This allows unwanted travellers to be banned before they can even check in for their flight to New Zealand. This check takes place based on the information which is filled in on the NZeTA application form. If this information matches a database with wanted or undesirable persons, or if for another reason it is suspected that the traveller might not be travelling with good intentions, the immigration service will not approve the visa application.

International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy - tourist tax

The tourist tax, also called “International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy” (IVL), is entirely for the benefit of sustainable projects surrounding tourism in New Zealand. An example of such a project is a rescue plan for an almost extinct parrot, the Kākāpō. Aside from New Zealanders, tourists also want to keep admiring this wonderful animal in the future, which is what this sustainable project is trying to realise.

Service fees of the visa

The remaining part of the visa price consists of the service fees, which charges to process the visa application and to provide customer support. The amount of the service fees varies due to fluctuations of the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) exchange rate. While the consular costs and the tourist tax are established in NZD, the total price of £64.95 is always in pounds. This way, you will not be at risk of exchange rate fluctuations and you can easily pay in pounds. This also means that you will not be paying any exchange rate surcharges for the conversion of your pounds into New Zealand dollars.

Additional costs for urgent delivery

Do you want to process your application with urgency? You can indicate that in the application form. The application will then almost always be processed immediately and in 90% of the cases the visa will be issued in 24 hours. However, please note that, in exceptional cases, even urgent applications can remain in processing with the immigration service of New Zealand for several days. As soon as the immigration service has started processing the application, it is no longer possible to influence the delivery time in any way. No guarantees can therefore be given regarding the delivery times, even when urgent. Are you planning to travel to New Zealand in the very near future? Always apply for the visa first and book your flight only after the visa has been issued. More information about urgent deliveries can be found in the frequently asked questions about the New Zealand visa. Are you travelling within 8 days? Then only an urgent application will be accepted.
