Travelling to Auckland

Travel Information

Travelling to New Zealand is easy. For practical information and travel advice before you leave, click here

Please find a handy document comprising everything you need to know about travelling to New Zealand here.

Passports & Visas

First, you’ll need to ensure your passport is valid for at least three months beyond your intended departure date from New Zealand.

Then, establish whether or not you need a visa. You can do that here.

Visa Waiver Countries

You do not need a visa to visit New Zealand if you are:

  • A New Zealand or Australian citizen or resident, or
  • A UK citizen and/or passport holder (you can stay up to six months), or
  • A citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand (you can stay up to three months)

Visitors from Visa Waiver countries do require New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA). There is more information here, or you can get underway and request your NZeTA here.

Please see here NZeTA information in languages other than English.

Non Visa Waiver Countries

If you don’t meet the Visa Waiver criteria, then you will need to apply for a Visitor Visa here (you will need to create a Real Me account, for safe verification).

Immigration New Zealand have advised delegates apply for visas well in advance of their travel dates - i.e. at least six weeks prior to travelling - to prevent any delays.

Delegates are able to use the automatically-generated registration receipt as proof of their visit, or, on request, WSCM2020 can supply a personalised confirmation letter. Please email if you'd like to receive one.

International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy (IVL)

Many tourists, visitors on working holidays, and some students and workers coming to New Zealand also need to pay an International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy of NZD$35 (IVL) before travelling to NZ. You pay your IVL when applying for either your visa or your NZeTA.
