Returning from overseas or visiting New Zealand

Everyone in the kiwifruit industry, or coming to New Zealand to work on an orchard, has a responsibility to manage biosecurity risks when travelling. To assist, KVH has developed a best practice poster to help reduce biosecurity risk after visiting or working on an offshore orchard or farm; and to explain what people can expect at border control when arriving in New Zealand.
