No, unfortunately, we cannot apply for an NZeTA for you if you have a refugee or alien passport. We recommend that you contact the embassy of the country you wish to travel to. They can give you more information about the documents you need to travel to the country.

Understanding Refugee or Alien Passports

Refugee passports are issued to individuals who have been granted asylum in a foreign country due to well-founded fear of persecution in their home country. Alien passports, on the other hand, are travel documents issued to non-citizens residing in a country. These passports differ from conventional passports issued by a country's government.

To apply for an NZeTA, you must be a citizen of a visa-waiver country or a permanent resident of Australia. However, individuals holding refugee or alien passports may also be eligible under certain conditions.
