Travel Visa for Australia, New Zealand & Fiji
Travel Visa: Also commonly referred to as a Tourist Visa, Visitor Visa or Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). Tourist Visas are required for entry into Australia. We process your Australian Visa (ETA) for you when you book your trip with us.
To process your Australian Visa we require:
A signed and completed copy of the Travel Visa for Australia – Application Form (2 Pages, approx. 15 minutes to complete)
A legible copy of your signed Passport
Visa Application Fee: US$15/person (Credit Card, Check or Direct Deposit)
Alternatively, you may purchase your Australian Tourist Visa (ETA) via the Australian Government’s Immigration website for approximately AUD$20.
Passport Requirements: It is strongly recommended, but not ‘required’, that all travelers intending to vacation in Australia have a passport valid for at least 3 months beyond their trip return dates. This protects you in the event that you need to extend your vacation for any reason, such as medical emergencies, natural disasters, airline strikes etc. For more details on eligibility for Australian Tourist Visa’s refer to the Department of Immigration & Citizenship of Australia.
NZeTA: As of October 2019, New Zealand requires a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) from citizens of Visa Waiver Countries, which includes the USA. You will also need an NZeTA if you are visiting New Zealand on a cruise ship, or are transiting through New Zealand to your final destination in a different country. New Zealand is also introducing a new $35 NZD tourist tax from October 2019 called the International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL).
To process your NZeTA and IVL:
Fill out the NZeTA form. You will need to supply your passport details. You can do this:
Pay the NZeTA application fee, payable by credit or debit card. The price depends on how you apply:
- Applying via the mobile app: $9 NZD
- Applying via the website: $12 NZD
Pay the IVL. You will be charged for the IVL when paying for your NZeTA – it’s all done in the same transaction. In total, both will cost you about $30 USD.
You will receive your NZeTA online via email. It may take up to 72 hours for your NZeTA to be processed.
Passport Requirements: The Department of Immigration (New Zealand) requires your passport to be valid for 3 months beyond your travel return date.
