Even though I'm fairly certain this is not a problem I figured I'll ask anyway.

If transiting through Auckland (Arrive and Depart International) is it possible to leave the airport if only transiting for about 5/6 hours? I realise there is not that much you can do in that time but I figure its better than sitting around the airport for hours.

Thanks

Welcome to AFF brissyflyer :)

Yes no problem assuming you are eligible to enter NZ (definitely the case for australians). You will need to clear immigration both ways (and customs & quarantine on arrival) which will take up to 2 hours in total. You will need to get a departure tax exemption sticker from the bank, just show your arrival BP if doing this landside on the way back in (or your departing BP/ticket if doing this airside on the way out).

Thanks for the quick reply Kiwi Flyer.

I figured that was the case but always good to be sure.
