Beginning December 17, 2012 U.S. citizens with Global Entry membership traveling to New Zealand will be able to use a dedicated lane arriving at Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch airports. The lanes will streamline border processing for U.S. Global Entry members.
Lanes will be clearly marked with signs that say "U.S. Global Entry." To be eligible to use the lanes, U.S. Global Entry members simply present their membership (Trusted Traveler) card, their U.S. passport, and arrival documentation.
This initiative is the result of an agreement between New Zealand and the United States to progressively improve the border experience for travellers flying between the two countries.
US Global Entry members will still be subject to standard customs, immigration and biosecurity processes on arrival in New Zealand.
