New Zealand is a relatively safe travel destination but we are not crime free. It is important you take precautions to look after yourself and your possessions. 

Visitor safety information

The Police have published some useful tips to help keep you and your possessions safe as you journey round New Zealand. This information is available in several languages, including English, German, French and Dutch.
