TRAVELLING TO NEW ZEALAND

VISAS & ELECTRONIC TRAVEL AUTHORITY (ETA)

visitors from visa-waiver countries must request an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) prior to coming to New Zealand. You may also have to pay an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL). For more information on the ETA and IVL, visit Immigration New Zealand.

VACCINATIONS

CURRENCY

TIME ZONE

New Zealand is one of the first places in the world to see the new day, 12 hours ahead of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).

PASSPORTS

When you arrive, your passport must be valid for at least three months beyond your intended departure date, and if required, have a valid New Zealand visa.

BIOSECURITY

In order to protect New Zealand and its environment, certain items are not allowed to be brought into the country, have restrictions for entry, or must be declared if they are deemed to present a biosecurity risk. These include food, plants, animal products and outdoor recreational equipment. You may risk a fine if you fail to comply.

ELECTRICITY

New Zealand's electricity supply runs at 230/240 volts and uses angled two or three-pin plugs (the same as Australia and parts of Asia).
