If you are entering NZ and Northland by sea in your own vessel you can save yourself some time by arranging for Customs and MAF inspectors to meet you on arrival.

Contact VHF Frequency 16 to reach Maritime Radio 48 hours prior to arrival.

For passengers on cruise ships arrangements will be made for you so you can enjoy your time ashore.

Be sure to have valid passports and relevant visas as required by NZ Immigration.
