New security check implemented

From July 19, 2016, new security check has been impemented for all travellers at the time of check-in. This means that all travellers flying to, through or from New Zealand will be checked against INTERPOL’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents database. Travellers should notice no difference to the current check-in process as this check will integrate seamlessly with other existing security checks.

The implementation of this additional security measure brings New Zealand one step closer to a safer Border by ensuring that people attempting to travel on stolen or lost travel documents are identified early and managed appropriately.
