What is the Niue Passenger Departure Card?

Just like when you arrive in Niue, there are some formalities you must undertake when departing Niue. One of these formalities is completing the Niue Passenger Departure Card. This is a double-sided form that you will need to complete and show to Customs Officers before passing through airport security. In this quick guide (which only needs to be quick as it is a very short form to fill), we show you what the Niue Passenger Departure Card looks like, as well as a few tips on how to complete it with ease.

  • Departure cards must be completed for every individual passenger leaving Niue, including children and infants

The Niue Departure Card – Front of Form

The front of the Niue Passenger Departure Card outlines instructions on how to complete the card. It also explains that the data collected by the card is for statistical purposes used by Statistics Niue.

There is also a reminder for cash reporting on the front of the card. It states that “if you are carrying, on your person or in your baggage, NZ$10,000 or more in cash or foreign equivalent, you must report this to a Customs Officer when you are completing passport formalities on departure from Niue.”

The Niue Departure Card – Back of Form

The back of the Niue Passenger Departure Form is the only part of the form that you have to fill out. It asks similar questions to the Passenger Arrival Card that you completed on arrival to Niue, asking your name, sex, date-of-birth, marital status, occupation, address in Niue (you can state your accommodation), country of birth, and which country you will live in for the next 12+ months.

There are also some multiple-choice questions regarding how you heard about Niue and your expenditure while in Niue.

Note that visitors to Niue do not need to complete section 12.

You will also need to state your passport number and your flight/ship number, so have this information available while you complete the form.

Finally, you will just need to sign and date the form. Hand in the form when you show your passport and boarding pass to the Customs Officer just before passing through security.
