    Default E visas

    Expansion of label-less visa programme
    From 21 November 2016, all applicants who apply online will be granted a label-less visa (eVisa) if their application is approved. This includes nationals from both visa waiver and visa required countries.

    Applicants from most visa required countries, who are applying from offshore, will still need to provide their passports.

    The visa is recorded electronically in INZís system, and the customer will not have a visa label in their passport. Instead, the visa approval notification is uploaded to the Immigration ONLINE account for that application. You will be notified by email to check your account. Advisers can either print or email the notification from the account for their client. This notification will contain details about their visa, including the travel and other conditions. Please contact INZ if there are any errors in the visa details in the approval notification.

    Visa holders are advised to carry their visa approval notification when they travel. Online systems allow airlines to confirm that a person can travel to New Zealand, but the visa approval notification can be used as an additional confirmation if requested.

    Visa holders must check the entry/exit or transit requirements of any countries through which they are intending to travel.

    Visa transfer to new passports
    Because visa details are linked to passports, people who obtain a new passport after being granted their visa need to transfer their visa details to their new passport.
    Visa Verification Service
    INZís Visa Verification Service can assist visa holders to access services where they need to provide their visa status. The Visa Verification Service provides online confirmation of a visa holderís visa and any conditions attached to it. Third parties such as banks, travel agents, health service providers and recruitment agencies can also use the Visa Verification Service, provided they have the consent of the visa holder.

    I got a sticker on 22-Nov-2016 and it's still a proper, paper one - Resident Visa through SMC. Offshore, London branch.
    And I obviously applied before 21-Nov-2016 - I did not understand from the first post, whether the date of 21-Nov-2016 applies to date of application, or date of 'label sticking'.
