Canada eTA Requirements for New Zealand Citizens

Canadian eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) is a system introduced in 2016 to verify travelers wishing to come to Canada by air. Their travel purpose has to be related to tourism activities, business affairs, or transit.

New Zealand citizens do not need to obtain a regular visa to travel to Canada. Instead, they can apply for an electronic visa for Canada.

Thanks to eTA, citizens of New Zealand don't need to waste time on complicated and time-consuming procedures of obtaining a regular embassy visa before traveling to Canada.

To get a Canadian eTA online, there is no need to have other documents than your valid passport.

Prepare any working electronic device with Internet access, and submit your online application. 

The approved electronic Canadian visa will arrive in your email inbox within maximally 3 days!
