What are the NZeTA & IVL?

I applied for this with ease. Simple steps to follow and a few personal questions to answer, then enter payment.

I was approved and issued in two hours!!! Easy steps. Pleasant experience.

But, it does tell you what you need to change to line up the photo correctly. Once I submitted the application, the approval process took less that 2 minutes.
