Philippine passport holders who are planning to visit New Zealand for less than 60 days will no longer need to pay the application fee of PHP6,260 for paper submission or NZD165 for online submission, in getting a New Zealand Visitor Visa.
“Citizens of the Philippines do not have to pay a fee or immigration levy for this application, when coming to New Zealand for fewer than 60 days,” says in New Zealand Immigration website.
Visa Application Centre (VAC) Service fee ranging from PHP570 to PHP760 and Courier Fee PHP380 to PHP600 are still needed to be paid.
