ETA-Enabled Tourist Visa On Arrival comes into effect

Those planning to travel to India must bear in mind that the manual Visa on Arrival for New Zealand citizens at Indian international airports has been discontinued from 26 December 2014. This is to make way for the recently launched electronic visa facility for passport holders of 43 countries, including New Zealand. Tourists from these countries can now avail themselves of an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) from their homes. They will have to apply online, upload a photo, a passport scan and pay the necessary fee online. Following this, the Indian government promises to deliver an ETA by e-mail in 72 hours. Over 75 counters have been set up at nine Indian airports to cater to ETA travellers. More details can be found here:

We would still advise those intending to visit India to contact the Indian High Commission in Wellington (or the nearest Indian Mission overseas if outside New Zealand) to check the latest information on Indian visa requirements and regulations.
