Agricultural Restrictions and Quarantine
New Zealand's agricultural industries are free of many insect pests and plant and animal diseases common elsewhere in the world. We put a lot of effort at ports and airports into minimising the risk of these being introduced. Heavy fines may be imposed on people caught carrying prohibited materials. On arrival visitors should place any questionable items, particularly fruit, in the bins provided at the airport. Please refer to http://biosecurity.govt.nz for more information.

For international passengers, we suggest that you try to allow yourself at least a day in which to adjust to the time difference and relax after your flight, before the Meeting commences. Travellers flying westward across the Pacific Ocean are reminded that they will lose a day by crossing the International Date Line. The ‘lost day’ will be returned on the return journey. To obtain the best rates for domestic air travel, it is essential to book airfares as soon as possible.
Parking at Rydges Latimer Christchurch is free of charge in the carpark located within the hotel grounds. (Parking is limited to 80 spaces - subject to availability).
