Travel Information


Flights to New Zealand are available from many international destinations. 

Depending on where you’re coming from, there are a number of airports 

that you can fly into, so you’re closeto where you want to be. 




We enjoy welcoming visitors to New Zealand and we’d like to think that

when you come here that you have an experience to remember - but for the

right reasons. So if you’re coming to New Zealand, it’s a good idea to make sure you have everything ready.


Most travelers need to obtain a visa prior to entering New Zealand. However, the good news is that New Zealand authorities have taken many steps to make this process as straightforward as possible.


You do not need a visa or permit to visit New Zealand if you are:

  • A New Zealand/Australia citizen or Resident Permit holder

  • An Australian citizen travelling on an Australian passport

  • British citizen and or British passport holder who can produce evidence of the right to reside permanently in the UK (you can stay up to six months)

  • A citizen of a country which has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand (you can stay up to three months).

  • If you come from Visa-waiver countries, you don't need a visa to enter New Zealand, but are still required to provide:

  • Travel tickets or evidence of onward travel arrangements

  • Evidence that you can support yourself in New Zealand (approximately NZ$1000 per month per person).


When you arrive in New Zealand, you’ll need to be carrying a passport that is valid for at least three months beyond your intended departure date. Many people will qualify for visa-free entry, but depending on your country of origin, some will need to apply for a visa before they travel.

Local Weather


Local weather (ref. Wikipedia) for Auckland in June would generally be 15.5°C (59.9°F) at the highest average, and the lowest average would be 8.1°C (46.6°F).

How to get to the venue or hotels from Auckland Airport


There are various transport options from Auckland Airport to the venue or hotels. From Auckland airport to Auckland CBD: 

Taxi, estimated to be $85NZD, Super shuttle - $35NZD and Airbus $16NZD.

 However, the Airbus will take you to the Airbus stops and not directly to hotels or the conference venue. For this reason, in order to go directly to the conference venue or hotels, it is best to take the Super shuttle or taxi from Auckland Airport or to contact the hotel instead.
