Where is New Zealand?
What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to New Zealand?
Around 200,000 UK holidaymakers and business people take trouble-free visits to New Zealand every year, but while crime rates are very low, recent high profile terrorist attacks and natural disasters mean travellers are at a greater risk than might have previously been thought.
The FCO highlights the global problem of terrorism, saying: “There’s a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals, from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria. You should be vigilant at this time.”
Large parts of the islands are very remote and uninhabited, so if you’re thinking of visiting any such parts always share details of your journey known to the local authorities and/or friends or relatives before setting out. The weather conditions in this part of the world can change quickly and become hazardous, especially in winter (which, remember, is during our summer months in the UK).
Although crime is low, you need to be vigilant, particularly of thieves who steal from camper vans and hotel rooms – never leave keep money and important documents unattended, and try to keep them in a safe, if possible.
On the whole though, the advice is to be as vigilant as you would be in any other areas, and you should have a trouble-free trip.
