The Minister of Immigration Michael Woodhouse has just announced a package of measures designed to make it easier for Chinese visitors to come to New Zealand.

eVisas (label-less visas and passport-free applications) are now available for Chinese nationals applying online onshore and offshore. eVisas mean recipients will not have a physical visa label in their passport; instead their visa is held electronically. Customers receive an electronic visa approval notification with their visa details, including visa start/end dates and conditions.

In addition, Chinese visa applicants can now apply online using a Chinese version of the RealMe log on service, enabling them to register in Chinese rather than in English and we have introduced landing and navigation pages in Chinese linked to the online Chinese visitor visa form. These changes are part of our aim to a complete online Chinese language application process, from registration to approval.
