New Zealand: How To Stay Connected

There are several ways to stay connected with family, friends, and business partners back home while you are travelling in New Zealand.

Telephone – New Zealand country code is 64. For example: to make a call to Auckland from the US you need to dial the US international access code (011) followed by the New Zealand country code (64) followed by the area code for Auckland (9) followed by the seven-digit telephone number. It’ll be: 011 64 9 123 4567.

To call home to, say, New York in the United States from anywhere in New Zealand you need to dial New Zealand international access code (00) followed by the country code for the United States (1) followed by the area code for New York (212) followed by the seven-digit telephone number. For example: 00 1 212 123 4567.

Most public phones take cards purchased from bookstalls; some also accept credit cards, but very few still accept coins.

Mobile Telephone – Roaming agreements exist with most international mobile phone companies. Coverage is good, however.

Internet – There are Internet cafes in cities and smaller town central business districts. Travelers may access the Internet at many hotels.

Post Office – Airmail to the USA takes three to ten days. Post office hours: Mon-Fri 09:00-17:00 and Sat 09:00-12:30 in some larger towns.
Now that you know your options there’s no excuse for not staying in touch. Have a great trip and stay connected!
