THE BORING BUT VERY USEFUL INFORMATION
Dunedin Airport is the only port servicing Dunedin however international delegates will be landing at our international arrival ports in Auckland or Christchurch.
Our partner travel agent is Vincent George Travel, the team at VGT will be able to assist with international bookings, currently it appears booking inbound international flights is less expensive when booked in New Zealand rather than overseas, this may chnage and it would pay to do a comparison.
Trading banks are open Monday - Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm.
ATMs (automatic teller machines) are widely available around the University campus and in the Dunedin CBD.
All symposium costs are quoted in NZ Dollars to check conversion rates against your own currency we recommend XE.
Dunedin is very well serviced with a large range of cafes, bars and restaurants catering for many cusines and tastes.
Travel VISAs may be required by some delegates, VISAs are the responsibility of individual delegates, please organise the necessary paperwork well in advance. Entry requirements

Aotearoa 'Land of the long white cloud" New Zealand. Temperatures in New Zealand are generally mild, but the weather can vary a lot around the country and might change quickly as we are a relatively narrow island nation. Locals like to joke that you can experience four seasons in one day! It pays to be prepared for what you might encounter on your travels.
