Travel Safe

Tens of thousands of New Zealanders travel or are resident overseas. For most this is an incident-free experience but the best laid plans can be upset by a number of problems. Some are impossible to forsee or avoid so, by planning ahead and arming yourself with the right information, you can reduce the risks you might encounter overseas.

SafeTravel is the official source of travel advice for New Zealanders, with advisories for specific destinations. Checking SafeTravel helps you avoid travel blackspots. On SafeTravel you can also register your details and travel plans, so if a crisis occurs overseas, MFAT will contact New Zealanders who have enrolled to check on their safety and well-bring.
