Offshore risks

Returning from overseas or visiting New Zealand? Everyone in the kiwifruit industry, or coming to New Zealand to work on an orchard, has a responsibility to manage biosecurity risks when travelling. To assist, KVH has developed a best practice poster to help reduce biosecurity risk after visiting or working on an offshore orchard or farm; and to explain what people can expect at border control when arriving in New Zealand.



KVH maintains a register of potential biosecurity threats (pests and pathogens) to the kiwifruit industry. This page includes a summary of this register and profiles of some high-risk organisms.

If you see unusual symptoms on your vines or a suspected unwanted pest phone the Biosecurity New Zealand hotline on 0800 80 99 66 or KVH on 0800 665 825
