There are no significant security risks associated with travel to New Caledonia but normal safety and security measures should be taken to ensure personal safety.

Civil unrest
There have been isolated security incidents associated with protests, demonstrations and civil unrest in New Caledonia. Protest activity can restrict travel by main roads in and out of Noumea. New Zealanders should be cautious in particular on the RP1 near St Louis as this route has been subject to occasional security incidents, which have caused injury.

New Zealanders are advised to avoid all demonstrations, protests and rallies as they have the potential to turn violent with little warning and should monitor the media to stay informed of local developments and  follow any instructions or restrictions issued by local authorities.

General travel advice
New Zealanders travelling or living in New Caledonia should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place that includes provision for medical evacuation by air.

New Zealanders in New Caledonia are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
