Electrical Items & Telephone

Electronics/Adapters
Electricity is supplied throughout New Zealand at 230 / 240 volts, 50 hertz.

You will need an adapter / converter, unless the item has a multi-voltage option.

Power outlets only accept flat three or two-pin plugs, depending on whether an earth connection is fitted. You may have a hairdryer, electric razor, or other small appliance that you use regularly. Make sure that they will work here before you add them to your baggage.

It is a good idea to have adapters so you can use your appliances in New Zealand. Alternatively, you can buy on arrival in NZ.

Telephone
Check with your phone company before leaving home about international mobile roam facilities available in New Zealand. If your phone can’t be used here, leave it behind. You’ll be able to buy another here very easily.
