NZeTA for citizens of Slovenia

Since July 2019, all citizens of Slovenia who are travelling to New Zealand for business or tourism purposes have been required to apply for a NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority).

The NZeTA is a new entry requirement that has been introduced in order to streamline the process of applying for a visa to visit New Zealand. In this blog post, we will take a look at what the NZeTA is and how Slovenian citizens can apply for one.

What Is The NZeTA?

The NZeTA is a electronic travel authorisation that New Zealanders travelling to or via New Zealand need to obtain before boarding their flight. It is valid for multiple entries into New Zealand for a period of up to two years, or until your passport expires (whichever is earlier).

You will need a NZeTA if you are:

  • A New Zealand citizen travelling on a New Zealand passport, or
  • A foreign national with an eligible passport*, and you intend to:
    • Visit New Zealand as a tourist
    • Visit New Zealand to do business
    • Transit through New Zealand en route to another country

Apply For An NZeTA For Citizens Of Slovenia

Slovenian citizens can apply for an NZeTA online through the New Zealand Immigration Service website. The application process is simple and straightforward, and should take no more than a few minutes to complete.

In order to apply for an NZeTA, Slovenian citizens will need to have a valid passport, and meet the following criteria:

  • Be aged 17 years or older
  • Hold a valid Slovenian passport
  • Intend to visit New Zealand for business, tourism or transit purposes only
  • Have a return ticket booked out of New Zealand
  • Have enough money to support themselves during their stay in New Zealand
  • not be planning to stay in New Zealand for longer than 3 months
  • not have any criminal convictions.

What Citizens Of Slovenia Need To Know Before Applying For A NZeTA?

Slovenia is a member of the European Union, and its citizens are eligible to travel to New Zealand visa-free for up to 90 days. However, from October 1 2019, all visitors from Slovenia (and other visa-waiver countries) will need to obtain an NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) before travelling.

The NZeTA is a quick and simple online application that can be completed in just a few minutes. All you need is a passport that is valid for at least three months beyond your planned date of departure from New Zealand, and a credit or debit card to pay the application fee.

Once you have obtained your NZeTA, you will be able to enter New Zealand multiple times over a period of two years, provided each visit is for less than 90 days. If you want to stay in New Zealand for longer than 90 days, or if you plan to work or study while in the country, you will need to apply for a different type of visa.

We recommend that all citizens of Slovenia apply for an NZeTA before travelling to New Zealand. For more information on the NZeTA and how to apply, please visit our website.
