Nationals of Taiwan are required to apply for an NZeTA visa for short-term entry into New Zealand (less than 90 days) for general tourist, business, transit, or medical purposes. The eTA program was launched in 2019 to screen tourists arriving from overseas in response to a global spike in terrorist activity.

NZeTA program was approved to develop the systems needed to interact with existing immigration databases and other security data to provide the new, seamless verification tool. Nationals of Taiwan must complete this eTA application before boarding a flight to New Zealand. The NZETA e-Visa is suitable for many purposes such as leisure, personal, business and transit travel. The visa is not suitable for visiting a doctor or traveling to New Zealand for work.
