Immigration New Zealand (INZ)(external link) is the government agency responsible for establishing New Zealand immigration policies.

In general, you will need a visa if you wish to:

The Immigration New Zealand website provides comprehensive information in English about visa requirements when coming to New Zealand including information on:

Taiwan visa waiver and NZeTA

Taiwanese passport holders travelling to New Zealand for less than three months on business, as tourists, to visit friends or relatives or for short-term study under three months, are not required to apply for a visa before they travel. However, a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) will be required.

Things to note:

  • If you are from a visa waiver country you must hold an NZeTA before you travel
  • Allow up to 72 hours for processing, but it could take as little as 10 minutes
  • An NZeTA request costs NZD $9 on our free app, or NZD $12 if completed online
  • You pay an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL) at the same time as your NZeTA. This costs NZD $35

Taiwanese passport holders wishing to stay in New Zealand for more than three months, or to live, work, marry or undertake courses of study longer than three months will still need to apply for a visa.

Taiwanese passport holders wishing to travel to New Zealand under the visa waiver programme must have the right to reside permanently in Taiwan and must satisfy New Zealand authorities upon arrival in New Zealand that they meet the standard visa admission requirements. These include being of good health and character, providing travel tickets or evidence of onward travel arrangements and evidence of funds for maintenance or of sponsorship while in New Zealand.

Although they provide information about submitting an application for a visa, they cannot provide immigration advice and have no influence on the outcome of an application for a visa for New Zealand.
