New Zealand is a developed country. It is given high ranking for the quality of life, education, health, economic freedom, and protection of civil liberties. There are many beautiful modern cities like Auckland and Wellington, where you can find all comfort. There are many hotels, winter resorts, casinos, parks. New Zealand is also famous for its wines and delicious food, which is found only in New Zealand. Therefore there is plenty of action and events that can allure anyone to visit New Zealand once.
Since 1st October 2019, the government of New Zealand has announced to make 60 countries, including Romania, as visa-exempt countries whose citizens don't have to obtain a tourist or transit visa to travel New Zealand for tourism or business purposes up to 90 days. It is compulsory to get an approved eTA (Electronic Travel Authority) to enter New Zealand. Citizens can apply an application for eTA online through mobile from their country.
Romania is one of the visa-exempt countries, so the Romanian citizens have to obtain an approved New Zealand eTA to cross the Border Security checking. An eTA is mandatory for all Romanian citizens to travel New Zealand for short term trips up to three months without a tourist or transit visa. An eTA is also required for those who want to enter through Auckland. When approved, it is automatically linked to the traveler's passport. The New Zealand eTA also eliminates the requirement of visa stamps on Border Security.
The travelers traveling along with their family members are required to give the passport details of each member, and the travelers flying with their other family members or minors are required to apply the New Zealand eTA application, particularly for each member.
Cruise passengers are required to obtain a valid New Zealand eTA just like Romanian travelers arriving in New Zealand by air. However, crew members need to apply for a particular eTA, separate from that of tourists. These workers should contact their employer for assistance.
Travelers should have good health when applying NZeTA. Applicants are asked whether they are traveling to New Zealand to receive medical treatment or consultation. If you are in this situation, you have to apply for a Medical Treatment Visitor Visa instead.
