Since 1st October 2019, the Government of New Zealand has exempted from the requirement of a visa for 60 eligible countries, including Sweden. So, the citizens of Sweden 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 get 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.
New Zealand has provided visa exemption to 60 eligible countries. The citizens of the sixty eligible countries needed to have an approved New Zealand eTA to cross the Border Security checking. The eTA escapes us from the difficulties of consulting the consulate or the embassy. An eTA is also required for those who want to enter through Auckland. The eTA also eliminates the requirement of getting stamps on the Border while entering the New Zealand Airport.
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 New Zealand eTA application individually for each member.
Cruise passengers are required to obtain a valid New Zealand eTA just like Sweden 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.
Travelers should be in good health. 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.
