The New Zealand Traveller Declaration (NZTD) is an online system that travellers can use to answer questions on travel, customs, immigration, and biosecurity information before they arrive in New Zealand. The earliest travellers can submit a declaration is 24 hours before starting their trip to New Zealand. Once they have submitted a declaration, they will receive an email telling them what they need to know when they enter New Zealand. Travellers need to complete a declaration for any dependents they are travelling with, including children and infants  

The New Zealand Customs Service has prepared a toolkit for promoting the NZTD to networks, customers, communities and in workplaces. In this toolkit, are factsheets posters, videos, flyers, forms, social media tiles and copy available in various languages including Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Punjabi, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese, Portuguese, French and German.

*Paper forms will continue to be available for travellers who cannot complete the form online and will be accepted as a paper-based version of the digital NZTD at the air border
