Re: deprture tax

You still have to pay a departure tax of NZD 25,-
See for more info about the departure procedures:

Re: departure tax



this is what the AKL web site has to say about it...........

International passenger departure fee
A NZ$25 Departure fee (Passenger Service Charge - PSC) (inclusive of GST) is payable by every international passenger, except for children under 12 years of age, and transit passengers in Auckland for less than 24 hours.

The departure fee is payable at Travelex outlets located on the ground floor check-in area, or in the first floor departure area.

Exemption stickers for children under 12 years of age and transit passengers who are in Auckland for less than 24 hours, are available at the Auckland Airport Travelex.

If you are departing New Zealand from Auckland after 1 July 2008 you no longer need to pay the $25 departure fee at the international terminal.

Travel Tips for Auckland


by Bernd_L

As Aucklands nickname "City of Sails" already indicates, many many of its inhabitants regularily enjoy sailing. You'll find a lot of marinas and boat harbours all over the city. One of the most centrally located is Viaduct Harbour.

Art Works

by keeweechic

Western Park fronts on to Ponsonby Road and has incurred many shocked stares as drivers notice what looks to be ruins poking out of the ground. These very unusual sculptures were created by John Radford and are a set of three works which represent buildings which once stood in Auckland.

You need to Flag down busses

by kiwi_god_damn

Auckland Public Transport is well ... Poor. There are never enough going to the places you need and sometimes finding the right bus stop is confusing. Visit the local Infomation Center or get yourself a Bus map/timetable from one of the local stores they are free and its a great place to start.

Brittomart is Aucklands new Transportation central. You can take busses or Trains from there to most locations in and around Auckland. If you get lost its a good place to get to know and there are a few cafes there which make good meeting places. Because its central and everyone knows it, starting and ending your day trips from there should make things alot easier.

if you love chinese food as we do!!

by rabbit06 about Canton Cafe

If you love Chinese dinning as we do, this is one of Auckland's best, with freindly staff and great food at reasonable prices this is not to be missed.
We have been here a number of times now and it is always busy, so do not forget to book!! My favourite dish's are sweat 'n' sour pork and the ginger beef and oh the lamb is so yummy and the prawns are just too mouth watering!! Oh and don't forget the fresh garden bean's with pork mince .... mm mmmmm!!!
But my darling Shirley just loves the Duck as you can understand.........!!

The Highest Point in Auckland

by Aidy_p

Where else can you get a nice 360 degree view of Auckland? Well, the best time to be at the tower is in the evening where you can catch the sunset. Make sure that it's not hazy or raining so that you get an unobstructed view.

Zipping up the lift, you can literally feel your ears pop. Afterwhich, take your time to soak in the panoramic view of Auckland. That's not all. Some portion of the floor is made of glass. I did a bit of knocking to make sure the glass floor could hold my weight. Thank goodness for the double glass protection.
