About the Declaration

If you are travelling to New Zealand by air, you must complete the official New Zealand Traveller Declaration before you travel to New Zealand.

The information you provide will be used to let you know what you need to do when you arrive in New Zealand: such as self-test on arrival or enter quarantine-free.

You need to complete a New Zealand Traveller Declaration and be issued with a Traveller Pass to board your flight to New Zealand.
