Coronavirus (COVID-19) update 25 February: Travel restrictions are in place at the border. Only travellers arriving in NZ on flights from Australia, Singapore and the United States will be allowed to use eGates. All other travellers are now required to have their passports physically checked by a Customs officer. We ask for your ongoing understanding and patience as we protect NZ from the Novel Coronavirus. More information. If you have an immigration enquiry about travelling to NZ from China or transiting through China, please refer to the Immigration website.
Report suspicious activity
You can help us protect our border.
Our border is not just at international airports – it’s anywhere where people, goods, or craft could enter or leave our country, including our sea ports and coastline.
You can help protect our border by reporting unusual activity on land, at sea and around our coast – or in your workplace if it’s within a Customs-controlled Area.
You know your area best – if you think it’s suspicious, it probably is.
Your tip can make a difference
One of the country’s largest drug seizures was from a private vessel abandoned at Ninety-Mile Beach as a result of suspicious activity reported by locals.
If something doesn’t look or seem right, it’s worth reporting.
If you hear about possible illegal activity, your tip could make a difference.
Your information could be the missing piece that helps us protect New Zealand from international crime, illicit drugs, terrorism, smuggling and other illegal activities.
