What is an ESTA? Do I Need a Full Visa as a Tourist From New Zealand?

The visa waiver program, also known as an ESTA (Electronic System For Travel Authorization) is a online document that allows an individual to travel to America as a tourist without the need for a ‘full visa’.
The application is completed online and if you are approved the travel authorization is electronically linked to your passport. Citizens of New Zealand are eligible to apply for an ESTA. You can view the full list of Visa Waiver countries here. You may visit the USA for up to 90 days at a time for up to 2 years or until your passport expires, whichever is first. You can view the full list of FAQ’s here.
If you are making multiple applications, each member of your party must submit an individual application. Once you submit an application, it will go through our 8 point check to ensure there will be no issues with your authorization. Sometimes it can take up to 72 hours for an application to receive a determination but you will be kept up to date from the moment your application is submitted.
You will receive all updates via the email you provide on your application and our phone lines are open 9am-5pm (GMT+0) if you have any queries.

FAQs

Citizens of New Zealand with a valid NZ passport are eligible to apply for an ESTA.

You will need an ESTA for any short visits to America. Every member of your family will require an ESTA, regardless of age. This is valid for 90 days, you can travel to multiple states during this time. Any travel longer than that will require a full visa, such as a B2 Visitor Visa.

In some cases you can get an ESTA for a business visit, providing it is unpaid. It is okay for the company to pay for any expenses, including accommodation, flights etc. If you will be paid for any of your time spent in the USA, you should apply for either a B1 Business Visitor Visa or one of the many work visas available.
