An eVisa or label-less visa, is a visa issued without a physical label.

New Zealand’s Immigration Act 2009 does not require you to have a visa label placed in your passport to confirm your immigration status and entitlements in New Zealand, and is issuing more eVisas in place of physical labels. The use of eVisas generally makes the visa application process faster and simpler.

If you are issued an eVisa, you will get a visa approval notification containing all the details of your visa, including the visa start and expiry dates and any travel conditions. It is important that you keep this visa approval notification in a safe place and carry it with you when you travel.
