Hi All,

Just heading to Oz for a week or so soon and I have 2 queries:

1. I'm a NZ citizen with a NZ passport so do I need to get a Visa or fill in one of those electronic applications like you have to with the USA?

2. As to electrical items like laptops and phones, do the chargers need adapters or will they work straight away?


Thanks in Advance :)

Have fun on you trip beeswax.

Have a read of this: http://computerworld.co.nz/news.nsf/scrt/567CEC3E4329FFAECC2575EA00767E68?opendocument&utm_source=security&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=security

When I went to Melbourne late last year, they were just trialling this process and you had to go thorough the SmartGates on both sides, but I chickened out using it, because I was in a hurry and didn't want to get caught up in a 'beta' process.

Looks like it passed testing though (mostly)!!
