Travellers will still need to complete the Passenger Arrival Card, which is handed out onboard your flight to New Zealand. The New Zealand Traveller Declaration will be reintroduced in the middle of 2023 and will replace the paper Passenger Arrival Card.
Customs NZ is working with other border agencies, including the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Biosecurity New Zealand, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Transport, to modernise our border. This will help travellers move through our airports and improve the safety and security of New Zealand.
This year, we will be getting feedback from travellers and airlines on new features and improvements to the New Zealand Traveller Declaration, as we get ready for it to be reintroduced.
