If you are travelling into Aotearoa New Zealand by sea on one of the following vessel types, you can now complete a digital declaration:
- small craft
- diplomatically cleared
- New Zealand Defence Force.
The New Zealand Traveller Declaration (NZTD) is an online system that you can use to complete a travel declaration before travelling to, or returning to, New Zealand. It includes customs, immigration and biosecurity questions, as well as health risk assessments (if required).
The NZTD system is still being trialled for cruise ship travellers. If you are travelling on a cruise ship which is trialling the digital declaration, your cruise ship company will share information with you about the trial.
