There’s another reason to visit New Zealand this 2018.
While the country is still requiring Filipinos to apply for visas before visiting the land of the Kiwis, the financial burden on applying for the document is now almost non-existent.
According to the official website of New Zealand, Filipinos who intend to stay in New Zealand for fewer than 60 days no longer need to pay the application fee.
The application cost of visas previously were Php 6,730, or around 134 USD. Filipinos who want to stay more than 60 days will have to pay the full amount, however.
There will still be service fees when you apply for the visa through the VFS Global, which is the company that processes visas for New Zealand.
Fees for the Visa Application Center (VAC) is currently set at Php 760 per application.
