We are doing a B2B cruise starting and ending in Auckland. We will be stopping at ports in Australia. Do we need to get a Visa for Australia?

You will need a Australian And New Zealand visa .just do it online.

Use the genuine government site only,because there’s a lot of identification theft going on with the agents.

Here's a link to the official Australian government website for obtaining your ETA:  https://www.eta.homeaffairs.gov.au/ETAS3/etas

The application is done online and the ETA is generally granted within minutes.  The cost is AUD 20.00.  The ETA is electronically attached to your passport, but you can print up a copy of your confirmation if you like.

 

Here's a link to the official New Zealand website for obtaining your NZeTA:  https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/apply-for-a-visa/about-visa/nzeta

The NZeTA becomes required beginning October 1, 2019.  It's similar (but not exactly the same) to the Australian ETA in cost and how you apply.  All of the pertinent information is on that website. 

 

I strongly recommend that you apply only through the official government websites.  There are many other websites which may purport to be able to obtain your ETAs, but they won't protect your personal information like the official government websites do.  And while some of these sites charge a little less than the official sites, some of them charge appreciably more.

Having issues with getting the AU ETA.  Credit card issue. Rather have the issue now rather than in January.

Nancy, if your credit card company is rejecting this call them to give them a heads up so they can flag approving this in their system.
