Nationality eligible for a New Zealand visa

If you want to use the NZeTA, you must have a passport from a “visa-free country”. These are some of the countries that have agreements with New Zealand allowing NZeTA travel. Do you have a passport from the Netherlands, Belgium, another EU country, Switzerland, or the UK? You can then apply for the NZeTA and use it to travel to New Zealand.
