From late 2022 NZ Passport holders will require ETIAS Visa waiver for Europe


    From late 2022 New Zealand passport holders will require an ETIAS visa waiver for the 26 Schengen member states/countries in Europe. There is no start date yet for this requirement.

    A bit like the ESTA visa waiver we need for the USA, NZ passport holders will need to apply online prior to travel and pay a fee (they haven’t specified the fee yet).

    The visa waiver will be valid for 3 years and will allow unlimited entries into the Schengen zone for stays of up to 90 days within any 180-day period. Not all European countries are part of Schengen.

    More details to follow when we have them
