International travel

Information for air and sea travellers about entering and leaving New Zealand.

Key points

You do not have to complete the New Zealand Traveller Declaration (NZTD) to enter New Zealand.

Travellers and crew do not need proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter New Zealand. Please check with your airline or cruise provider as they may still require proof of vaccination.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms when you arrive in New Zealand by air, we encourage you to take a rapid antigen test (RAT). You can get free RATs at the airport.

Please report a positive test result by calling:

  • 0800 432 010  if you are calling from a New Zealand phone number
  • +64 9 954 6118  if you are using an international SIM card. Check with your phone provider as there may be charges.
