The New Zealand Government has introduced a compulsory Electronic Authority for travel from today 01 October.
There are few exemptions including New Zealand and Australian passport holders. The cost is $12 plus a compulsory $35 conservation fee. The authority can be completed online or via an app. It can take up to 72 hours to confirm, so travellers should leave plenty of time.
