For making it seamless and simpler for Indian leisure travellers to visit New Zealand, the New Zealand Tourism (NZT) and Immigration New Zealand (INZ) have inducted Cox & Kings Ltd in its Tourism Industry Partnership Programme (TIP). The TIP Programme will provide a more streamlined process for procuring a New Zealand visitor visa to the Indian visitors travelling with Cox & Kings. The faster processing of visa will now take just three days as compared to fifteen days as in the past. The new arrangement formally came into effect with the signing of an MOU at the St Regis Hotel, Mumbai.
The new agreement will enable Cox & Kings Ltd to send more high calibre visitors to the multi-faceted New Zealand. There is a growing interest among Indians to explore this splendid country and an easier visa process is poised to take the numbers to greater heights.
Commenting on the association, Mr Karan Anand, Head, Relationships, Cox & Kings Ltd said,” It gives us immense pleasure on being appointed as a preferred agent for New Zealand Visa. The initiative will facilitate an increase in Indian visitors’ traffic to the country. Indians’ dynamic travel demands are best catered to by this marvellous destination. The easier visa procurement will enable us to further innovate in our travel offering.”
From Self-Drives to other irresistible activities, Cox & Kings has been curating New Zealand Journeys for a wide range of travellers’ segments in India. While it still offers everything exotic, the destination provides more to unravel every time Indians visit. Be it the cruises or the caves, New Zealand is a land for the luxury travellers, explorers, families, honeymooners and everyone else who just want to relax.
The partnership will enable Indian travellers to benefit from the easier visa process while travelling with Cox & Kings.”
