What you can get
You may apply for up to a NZD$2,500 contribution.
The amount must be based on actual costs related to your trip. Costs can include:
- travel such as flights, rail, bus, or ferries
- travel insurance
The contribution cannot cover food, entertainment, or other costs.
You cannot receive more than your full Commemorative Travel Contribution allocation. This is:
- NZD$2,500, or
- NZD$2,000 if you received it before 1 July 2016. This was the maximum that could be claimed at the time.
If you have not received your full allocation, you can apply for the remaining balance.
If you are eligible for a Travel Concession Payment, you cannot use a Commemorative Travel Contribution to pay for travel to attend a domestic commemoration within New Zealand.
