UPDATE international inbound passengers 

The New Zealand Government has introduced a new travel requirement for some visitors and transit passengers. The New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA) is effective from 01 October 2019.
You may be travelling on a passport that will require either a visa or an NZeTA in order to enter New Zealand.
Please take a moment to check your NZeTA requirements, as well as for any others travelling with you.
If you are travelling on a New Zealand or an Australian passport, or hold a valid visa to enter New Zealand, you will not require an NZeTA.

Please check HERE to see if you are affected by these changes.
