Welcome to Auckland, New Zealand
Travellers arriving at Auckland International Airport will be able to complete a digital declaration from late August 2023.
The New Zealand Traveller Declaration collects travellers’ Customs, Immigration, and Biosecurity information. The online form aims to help arriving international passengers move through airports more efficiently and improve the safety and security of New Zealand.
Before you arrive in New Zealand you can complete the New Zealand Traveller declaration online or on the NZTD App. It is free and will take about 10 minutes to fill in. The earliest you can submit your declaration is 24 hours before departing for New Zealand.
If you are unable to complete the digital declaration you will be given a paper Passenger Arrival Card to complete during your flight.
Every passenger carrying NZ$10,000 or more in cash and/or foreign currency equivalent must notify a Customs Officer.
Your declaration will be checked when you arrive and any goods you’ve declared will be inspected by a Ministry for Primary Industries Officer after you’ve cleared Passport Control and collected your bags. Your bags may be sniffed by detector dogs, X-rayed or searched.
