I have an Australian tourist visa 9 months and am a Filipino citizen. I am currently in Australia and wish to travel to New Zealand for two weeks.
What visa would I need and best way to apply?

New Zealand issues both printed visa labels and label-less visas. Printed visa labels are inserted into a passport or travel document. There is no physical evidence of a label-less visa in the passport or travel document but all passengers must carry a printed visa approval letter that confirms the details of their visa. The New Zealand visa record is held in Immigration New Zealand's systems and authority to board should be verified using the NZ APP system. Airlines not connected to NZ APP that carry a passenger on an earlier leg of their journey, can use TIETACNZ, or view the printed visa label or the visa approval letter to identify any travel conditions, such as whether the person is exempt from the requirement to hold a return/onward ticket.
