International travel

Travel from New Zealand 

If you are based in New Zealand, you are eligible to apply for the cost of traveling overseas from New Zealand only if the New Zealand Government travel advice permits international travel at the time you submit your application.  

If the travel advice changes to ‘do not travel’ after you’ve submitted your application, we reserve the right not to fund the travel, or the project, at our discretion.  

Visit www.safetravel.govt.nz and read the COVID-19 advice and specific country information before submitting an application. 

If the government advice is ‘do not travel’, but you still intend to travel: 

  • At our discretion, we may support costs incurred where the project is taking place 
  • You will need to find other financial means to cover the travel-related costs, e.g., flights, travel insurance, visas. 

Creative New Zealand will not fund the cost of quarantining or managed isolation in any circumstances. Please refer to COVID-19 related costs we can support here  

Travel within and between overseas countries 

If you travel internationally from New Zealand, or are a New Zealand artist based overseas, and your project requires further travel within or between overseas countries, you must provide confirmation of the official travel advice from the government of the country you reside in and/or are travelling to.
