Two easy steps:  4-6 weeks prior to travel

Step 1:  Complete a Travel Health Questionnaire for each person

Travel Health Services New Zealand

At least 4-6 weeks prior to departure, download the Travel Health Questionnaire. Type directly into the document on screen and save a separate file for each person. Have your itinerary nearby to do this.

Email us all completed forms at least 1 – 2 weeks before you need your health appointment. We will review your information ahead of your visit.

Step 2:  Book your Travel Health appointment

Once you have sent your completed document via our email form we will contact you to make a travel appointment with our travel doctor, Dr Nick Hanna. Travel appointments are generally 30-45minutes depending on your destination. Once Dr Hanna has assessed your Travel Health Questionnaire he will advise reception of the timeframe needed for your consultation. We will call you to provide an appointment appropriate to your Travel Itinerary.

Travel consultation fees apply – From $135 per person for a 30-minute appointment. Vaccines and nurse time are an additional cost.

We advise booking 4-6 weeks in advance because some vaccines require more than one dose, a week or two apart. This allows time for the vaccines to start working before you leave.

Our medical team works together to provide you with the very best travel advice.  This includes the latest preventative measures for insect-borne diseases including Malaria, Dengue Fever, Japanese Encephalitis and much more. We can also provide you with recommendations for avoiding accidents and injury, first aid, jet lag, diarrhoea, and motion sickness.
