As of 1 October 2019, the New Zealand government has announced that 60 countries will be visa-free, including Romania, whose nationals do not require a tourist or transit visa to Visit to New Zealand for up to 90 days.
Citizens of Romania can travel to New Zealand without an entry visa based on the NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority) electronic certificate, which must be obtained prior to travel (click here to be redirected to the NZeTA). There is also an International Tourism known as IVL for travel to New Zealand. IVL tax is paid through immigration at the same time as receiving the NZeTA e-certificate. Entry into New Zealand is only permitted with a passport valid for at least 3 months from the intended date of departure from New Zealand (more information here). The maximum length of stay permitted for visa-free travel is 90 days in any 6-month period from the date of first entry when traveling for tourists, visiting or other valid short-term purposes. A visa is required to enter New Zealand if the purpose of the visit is to obtain medical treatment or advice.
In terms of visa-free entry, the border control formalities of this country are very strict: interviews are often conducted in English, at which point all proof of the purpose of travel (proof of accommodation, invitation of sponsors, round-trip tickets, proof of sufficient funds for the entire stay) is requested.
