NZeTA is New Zealand's e-travel authority, launched in 2019 to make travel more accessible. Citizens of New Zealand visa-exempt countries can use this entry document to travel to New Zealand for tourism, business or transit purposes. New Zealand's eTA allows you to enter the country multiple times over a two-year period. Holders can stay in New Zealand for 90 days at a time. Applying for an NZeTA for Vatican City residents is easy: applicants must fill out an online form, attach a photo portrait and biographical passport details, and pay a fee. Processing usually takes about 23 hours, maximum 3 working days. After this period, an approved travel authorization will be sent to the applicant's email address as a PDF document.

Is NZeTA required for Vatican citizens?

As announced by the New Zealand government on 31 October 2019, the Vatican is one of the countries that are visa-free for travel of up to 90 days, but New Zealand's eTA is required to allow identification of a person crossing the border and is mandatory for all Vatican citizens. It is linked to the passport of the passenger automatically. New Zealand eTA is valid for 2 years or until the expiration date, whichever comes first.;

Cruise passengers must submit a valid New Zealand eTA as Vatican passengers arriving by plane in New Zealand. Even crew members have to file eTA individually, separate from tourists. They can contact their employer for the best assistance.

Vatican City residents planning to travel to destinations outside of New Zealand via Auckland International Airport only must also submit a valid eTA. Nationals traveling to New Zealand with their families are required to provide passport details of all members when submitting the NZ eTA application form. Travelers traveling with other members must submit an eTA application form for each member individually.
