scanned, in colour, and uploaded to Immigration ONLINE.
How will my or my employee's passport be endorsed if
the application is online?
If you are in New Zealand and use Immigration ONLINE to apply
for either a work visa (if you are from a visa-waiver country) or
visitor visa (excluding Chinese nationals) then you will be issued
If you are not in either of those categories, you must send your
passport to INZ, after you have submitted the application.
Immigration ONLINE will tell you the address.
What is an e-visa?
An e-visa is an electronic visa. The visa details are on a PDF
document that INZ sends by email. You/your employee must keep a
copy to show when departing and re-entering New Zealand.

No. An e-visa has the same validity and conditions as a visa
that has been endorsed in your passport.
