Returning from overseas or know someone visiting New Zealand?
21 February 2019

Whether returning home from a holiday or visiting New Zealand for seasonal work, everyone has a role to play in protecting kiwifruit orchards from unwanted pests and diseases that could affect jobs, income, and the community.

Any person 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 with this, KVH has developed a best practice poster to help reduce biosecurity risk after visiting or working on an offshore orchard or farm; showing what items need to be cleaned before packing luggage and why; and to explain what people can expect at border control when arriving in New Zealand. You can download and print the poster, or contact KVH if you’d like us to print a larger size for you, your orchard, workplace or staffroom.
