The New Zealand Dollar is the official currency of New Zealand, The Cook Islands, Pitcairn Islands, Niue and Tokelau and 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 (1st of July to 30st of September, 2016) show that the average British tourist takes about £1350 ($2,625.08NZD). This is an incease from the £1,000 ($1,940 NZD based upon orders place between 1st August and 31st October 2013).
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 that can be avoided with a prepaid card.
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 to show proof of onward travel 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 which you can obtain from the New Zealand Embassy in London before you travel.
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.
