Due to space limitations aboard the charter vehicles used in New Zealand, each
passenger is permitted only one average-sized piece of checked baggage weighing a maximum of 20kg (44lbs), plus their carry on luggage.
Clothing and Packing
Passengers will find casual clothing of all types comfortable and relaxing.
Lightweight drip-dry clothing is ideal. Warmer clothing for evenings will be
handy. As New Zealand can experience ‘four seasons in one day’ layering
is key. Regular laundry facilities are available throughout the tour. For special dinners many guests like to dress up, but by all means be comfortable; on the remaining nights “smart casual” is suggested. We recommend that passengers pack their prescription medicines (an adequate supply to last through the journey) along with the travel documents and a change of clothing in their carry-on bag to avoid any inconvenience in the event that a flight or luggage is delayed.
Passports & Visas
All visitors require a passport to travel to and to enter New Zealand or Australia which must have a minimum validity of 6 months remaining. It is a good idea to carry a photocopy of the ‘Photo Page’ of their passport, as well as to leave photocopies of the travel documents and identification papers with someone at home.
Entry to New Zealand
Australian passport holders do not require visas; neither do Australian permanent residents with current resident return visas. All other visitors to
New Zealand must possess a return or onward ticket to a country to which
you have right of entry.
New travel rules for New Zealand
The New Zealand Government has introduced a new border security measure and travel requirement for some visitors and transit passengers. Called the NZeTA (New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority), travellers must request theirs via the official mobile app or website. Approval can take up to 72 hours, so get yours before you go. The NZeTA is required for travel from 1 October 2019. Visit www.immigration.govt.nz/nzeta to find out if you need one.
Some travellers who are eligible to travel to New Zealand without a visa will now be required to hold an NZeTA before their travel to New Zealand. The NZeTA is not a visa and doesn’t guarantee entry to New Zealand. On arrival in New Zealand, travellers must still meet all existing entry requirements, such as holding an onward travel ticket, being a bona fide visitor and being in good health.
Customs and Immigration
Compliance with any Australian and/or New Zealand immigration, customs and/or quarantine regulations is the client’s responsibility. Leisure Time Tours / Inspired Tours and Events cannot, under any circumstances, be held liable nor responsible if applicable rules and regulations are not observed.
