From 01 October 2019 all visitors to New Zealand now require ETAs. Applications have opened this week.
New Zealand and Australian Citizens are exempted.

Australian PR, certain Pacific Island countries and transiting passengers now require an ETA but NOT an IVL (International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy).
The IVL costs NZD $35 / AUD $33.35 and is paid at the same time as the NZeTA.

    Where's the bargain? This is normal price.

    This is not bargain.

    hardly a bargain, not taking into account an additional $35 tourism charge. Doesn't mean that NZ is not a worthy travel destination but this is an additional hurdle for citizen of relatively developed countries where they used to be able to travel visa-free. For the rest of those unfortunate, still a $100+ visa application fee with countless documents to submit.

      Yes, some countries have this notion that they really should check who's arriving within their territory.

      This doesn't come for free - they need to employ people to shuffle your bits of paper.

      Seems entirely reasonable to me…

      And it qualifies as a 'bargain' - discount via the app if you fit within the category that requires a NZeTA.

    If we're exempt what's the point of posting this?

    The rule is ambiguous. For people who enter before 1st October but stay until after 1st October,do they need to pay?

    Wow, requiring ETAs for passengers transiting between international flights, who will never even pass through border controls, seems rather stupid.

    I fly to South America for work a couple times a year and actually preferred Auckland over Sydney as a stopover due to it being easier to transit there. So much for that it seems.

      Well, AU requires transit visas for many nationalities too. And countries like the US require ESTAs for transiting passengers.
      I guess it depends on your nationality as to how it will impact you.

        Heh, you're right - hadn't noticed that their list of transit visa waiver countries is even bigger than ours and includes pretty much all of South America so it probably won't impact anyone at all on this route.
