Since 1 st October 2019, the Government of New Zealand has exempted from the requirement of a visa for 60 eligible countries, including Cyprus. So, the citizens of Cyprus don't need to obtain a tourist visa to travel New Zealand for short term trips up to 90 consecutive days for tourism or business purposes. The citizens have to obtain an approved eTA (Electronic Travel Authority) to cross the Border Security. The eTA is also helpful in the identification of the individuals as it is automatically linked to the traveler's passport after getting approved.

The travelers traveling along with their family members have to give the passport details of each member, and the travelers flying with their other family members or minors must apply the NZeTA application individually for each member.
Cruise passengers have to obtain a valid New Zealand eTA just like Cyprus travelers arriving in New Zealand by air. However, crew members have to apply for a particular eTA, separate from that of tourists. These workers should contact their employer for assistance.

When requesting the New Zealand eTA, applicants will be they are asked if whether they are traveling to the country to receive medical treatment or consultation. If you are in this situation, you will have to apply for a Medical Treatment Visitor Visa instead of an eTA.
