How to get around New Zealand’s travel restrictions

The rules are so tight you have to pay to travel. 

In the north-east, you’re likely to have to book in advance on the day you want to visit. 

There are no refunds available. 

Travelers arriving from New Zealand on the island of Cook Strait and departing from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut must have a travel insurance policy that covers them, even if they’re not returning to New Zealand. 

You need a cover if you’re returning home from holiday and there are two or more flights in the same itinerary. 

It’s also a requirement if you intend to visit the islands of Tonga, Kiribati, Vanuatu and Tuvalu. 

And for tourists heading to the country of Samoa, you’ll need a ticket to the islands for each visit.

There are some exceptions to this rule, but if you need to travel on a plane you must get permission from your travel insurer to do so.

The rules aren’t quite as draconian as they are in the US, but the costs are high. 

As you’d expect, there’s no direct airport access.

You need to book a flight to another country and then travel to a different country on a different flight, with the same flight number. 

The airline will check the details of your travel insurance policies to make sure they’re compliant. 

But if the cost of the ticket exceeds your insurance policy, you will not be able to book that particular flight for that trip. 

For a cheaper alternative, it’s worth checking the flight number you received from the airline on your passport. 

If it’s a single-stop flight to Samoa, then you should book the flight for a single night, not a double-stop. 

So if you’ve booked a single flight to New York from New Jersey, you can book that same flight for two nights, and vice versa. 

However, it would be advisable to book the same two flights at once if you have a ticket on standby. 

Once you arrive, you may want to book on the plane with your travel partner for two days in advance to reduce the number of flights you need. 

To book a return flight to the destination, you must pay the difference between the ticket price and your travel costs. 

On a double ticket, the difference is 20% of the price of the return flight. 

After the first leg of your journey, you need only pay your travel fee, and you can then return home for your second leg, which is the same price as the first. 

By contrast, a single ticket can be booked for both the return and return trip on the same day and you pay the full fare, regardless of how long you’ve stayed in Samoa. 

Your airline will need to refund the difference on the return ticket.

If you have the right insurance, you could be charged more on your return ticket if the amount you’re being charged exceeds your travel cover. 

A small exception to this is if you are travelling from a third country, and the ticket is issued to the same individual. 

All of these rules apply to flights between New Zealand and Samoa.

What to do if you get a ticket that’s not rightA travel insurance company will often send you a form that asks for proof of your insurance cover if it’s for a double trip, or if you booked a ticket for a trip from a different state. 

This form will ask for the date, time and destination of the departure from New Mexico, and ask for a copy of your passport if you paid the extra ticket cost for the return trip.

The company will then check whether you have enough insurance cover on your insurance policies, and if so, how much. 

Any coverage that you’ve got from your insurance will usually cover you if you go to Samoa.

If you’re travelling to another state, it may also include travel insurance for you and your partner. 

Insurance companies will send you the form to complete on your arrival at the airport. 

Be sure to check it out if you can. 

When you’re done, you should ask the airline to send you an insurance policy statement. 

These can often be found online, but there are a few more places you can ask. 

Most of the time, the company will send a form to you, but they will sometimes email it to you. 

An insurance company may also email you when they have received your insurance, and can also tell you when the insurance policy is due to be paid. 

Many travel insurers also send insurance quotes to you when you book your trip, so you should have a copy in case you need it. 

They also have an app that lets you search for a travel policy by name, date and price. 

How to check your insurance quotes and claimIt’s important to have insurance, because it’s essential if you travel to another territory.
