Trans-Tasman travel on the cards?
29 April 2021

The Trans-Tasman bubble is open, which means new ads are popping up in airports across Australia reminding travellers of New Zealand’s strict biosecurity requirements.

It’s been a while since most of us have travelled internationally, so if you’re going overseas, don’t forget to clean your shoes and check your bags for fruit or other biosecurity risk items when you return to New Zealand. If you have anything, chuck it in the bin or declare it to avoid a $400 fine.

If you have any visitors coming to your place – especially your orchard – be sure to remind them too.

KVH has put together a useful poster outlining what kiwifruit growers can do to help reduce biosecurity risk and what you can expect when returning through border control (if you happen to be travelling at this time). We can print the poster for you and send it out to you if you like – contact us at with postal details.
