In some cases, a visa may be necessary, depending on where you came from.
Unlike in other countries in the world, New Zealand is virtually free of many plant diseases, insect pests, and animal infections. The government puts a lot of effort into minimizing the possibility of any these coming into the country. Visitors to New Zealand are therefore advised to follow the laws of the country.

This means you must dispose of or declare goods that are considered high contamination risk upon arrival at the country’s international borders.


This is important as you may have brought things with you that might be carrying diseases or pests. These foreign contaminants may cause New Zealand’s economy and environment damages amounting to millions of dollars. Incorrect declaration may incur fines that you will be required to pay.
