The cost of the New Zealand visa consists of application costs, consular costs and a tourist tax. The tourist tax is officially called “International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy” (IVL) and is included in the total visa costs of £49.95 per person. Payment can be made easily, securely and quickly via this website.
Application costs, tourist tax and consular costs
The total price of the New Zealand visa is £49.95 per person. This amount is made up of consular costs (12 NZD), the tourist tax (35 NZD) and the application costs.
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.
Application costs of the visa
The remaining part of the visa price consists of the application costs which e-Visa.co.uk charges to process the visa application and to provide customer support. The amount of the application fee 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 £49.95 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.
Summary costs NZeTA visa for New Zealand
The total cost of the visa is £49.95 per person. This price includes all application costs, consular costs, the IVL tourist tax, VAT and transaction costs (regardless of the chosen payment method). Only if an urgent application is selected, will an added fee of £17.50 be charged to process the application with priority.
Additional costs for urgent delivery
Do you want e-Visa.co.uk to process your application with urgency? You can indicate that in the application form. The application will then almost always be processed immediately, which results in an issued visa in 90% of the cases. But take note: even applications for which an urgent delivery was chosen can in exceptional cases 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.
