New Zealand Dollar Currency Guide

The New Zealand Dollar is the official currency of New Zealand, The Cook Islands, Pitcairn Islands, Niue and Tokelau and (as of 2013); the Republic of Nauru.

In recent times, New Zealand has become an increasingly popular holiday destination which has driven up NZD exchange rate. Still, most currency houses in the UK offer the New Zealand Dollar so competition is strong and there are good deals to be found. Our statistics show that the average British traveller takes about £1,000 (N$1,940 based upon orders place between 1st August and 31st October 2013) worth of Dollars to New Zealand with them. This figure is up from £900 last year.

If you would prefer to not take all of your currency in cash, consider a prepaid currency card as an alternative payment method. ATM machines are plentiful in New Zealand, but using a UK credit or debit card will usually incur hefty fees is one of top travel industry partners that supports of the FCO’s Know Before You Go campaign whose aim is to help Brits to stay safe and healthy abroad.

Visa’s for Entry to New Zealand

To enter New Zealand as a British Citizen you do not need a visa for the first six months providing you can meet the requirements for immigration. Upon entry you will need an onward ticket and your passport must have at least one month left on it when exiting the country. If you plan on working in New Zealand you will need a visa before entry for employment.

Crime levels are particularly low…

It is illegal to enter to New Zealand with most food products such as Meats, Dairy, Fruit and Honey. You must also take care when importing goods such as Golf Clubs, Wooden Products, Tents, Footwear, Fishing Equipment and Animal Skins. All the above products come under the Bio Security Regulations for New Zealand and if found in possession of these goods it could potentially lead to a hefty fine or even imprisonment. If you are carrying prescription drugs you must declare these on your passenger arrival card and some other medications also carry particular restrictions. You are advised to check the New Zealand customs website for more information before travelling.

Safety Tips for New Zealand

Crime levels in New Zealand are particularly low however in the major towns and cities you must still be vigilant as street crime can take place especially around hotels or from unattended vehicles such as hire cars or camper vans. You are advised to keep your belongings out of sight and ensure you keep your passport and credits cards separate or ideally in your hotel safe.

Taking part in extreme sports in New Zealand can be dangerous especially in areas where you are remote and weather conditions can turn unsafe. You are advised to keep up to date with weather reports and ensure you leave details of where you are going with the local visitor centre or authorities. If a company is managing your trip then make sure they are well equipped and that your travel insurance covers you comprehensively.

Driving in New Zealand can be difficult as some roads including highways are narrow. Your UK driving licence will cover you for driving in the country for up to 12 months, however, motor insurance it not a legal requirement and instead New Zealand have a scheme called ACC which pays out if you need care after being involved in an accident. You are advised to take out travel and accident insurance just in case of an accident to ensure you are covered for delayed travel and loss of income.

The New Zealand government have an agreement with the UK to provide immediate healthcare to British Citizens if you are on a short trip to the country. All you need to do is show your passport when required. However, you are still advised just in case to take our comprehensive travel insurance. If you are an Asthma Suffer then the risk of an attack is higher when visiting New Zealand and you should be fully prepared before travelling.

New Zealand is prone to earthquakes and has several active volcanoes in the country. You are advised to take advice from the local authorities in the case of any natural disaster emergency.
