This is levied on those visa waivered countries and yes, it affects us.

How did you two read that there is no impact on Singaporeans? putting aside that a1v1n_'s travel period is before start of new rule.
Oh I thought visa and NzETA are the same thing and since we are in the list of visa waiver countries, we need not apply for the NzETA.

But I stand corrected, as lurker88 bro has rightly pointed out.

Mostly free. Only paid for bigger cities like queens town and Christchurch. Parking not cheap for those that need to pay but still ok ba unless u stay very long at this few places then keep paying daily.

Eh.. they have a machine there at the carpark. U can pay at the machine. They have Wilson there too.

For roadside parking, pay at the roadside slot machine lo.

Some can use cc to pay one. If roadside I think mostly is cash.

Unless u r driving motor home or big camper but If u r driving normal car, u can have free parking at park Street or the garden beside at Queenstown. It is a very leisurely 10 mins walk.

For Christchurch. Most shopping malls and supermarket also offer 2 to 4 hours free parking.

Most larger cities are not free. You have to pay for it. Auckland, Wellington are the most expensive.

If you are driving a campervan, you could struggle to park on the roadside carpark. You pay by coins for the carpark unless you goto multi storey car parks where it is like Singapore.

If you want free parking, park at shopping malls. However, if you hire a big campervan, you will struggle to find a park for the vehicle.
