Registration of New Zealanders overseas

Help us find you in an emergency, so we can check on your well-being or send you important information.

Why is registering important?

We encourage all New Zealanders travelling or living overseas to register online.  This allows us to contact you if there is a crisis, or if you have a family emergency, while you’re overseas.  Just like making sure you’ve had the right vaccinations and that you have the right visas, registering should be on your list of things to do before you leave home.

Where we need to contact New Zealanders who are thought to be in an area affected by a cyclone, major earthquake or bomb blast overseas, those who have registered their travel contact details are likely to be accounted for first.

So, no matter where you are travelling to overseas, if you take the time now to register you can be assured that if an emergency situation develops in the country you’re in, then we will do our best to contact you and see if we can provide any assistance.

Remember, if you haven’t registered with us, we don’t know where you are.

For more information and to register now, please visit the Safetravel website and then click on register now.
