Travel Tips and Advice
 

 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade provides advice on security risks in a number of destinations. This advice is based on information from a variety of sources. It reflects risks, and their assessment of what these might mean for New Zealanders. Their assessment may also take account of the actions local authorities are taking to minimise the risk, and our ability to provide you with assistance.

We recommend checking the Safe Travel Government website for the latest travel advice and news.

On 17 August 2018 they altered the headline language attached to their travel advisory levels. They did not change the way in which advisories are prepared, the substance of the advisories, or the thresholds for the different levels. They simply changed their description of the four levels.

The new advice levels correspond to the previous system as follows:

  • Exercise normal safety and security precautions (previously “no significant security risk”)

  • Exercise increased caution (previously “some risk”)

  • Avoid non-essential travel (previously “high risk”)

  • Do not travel (previously “extreme risk”)
