Whilst archery equipment is not categorised as an"OFFENSIVE WEAPON" in New Zealand, some Airlines designate "Bows and Arrows" as special, or "restricted" items.

EXAMPLE: VIRGIN Airlines treat as "restricted"---EMIRATES require a form filled out for prior approval.

On arrival to New Zealand, be aware of our Agricultural declaration on the arrival form for ANY wooden items.

Declare a wooden bow, or arrows, It will not be an issue, as they just want to be sure any wooden item is not carrying pests, or eggs etc.

Be SURE to check with your carrier as to their policy early

New Zealand offers a vast choice of scenery and adventures, producing memories that will last a lifetime and envy in those that have not experienced the Magic of New Zealand
