Riders who are requesting entry into international events where Cycling New Zealand, as the National Federation, has entry jurisdiction are required to apply through the 'International Event Entry' process (in addition to any selection criteria). You can access the process here.
Riders who are travelling or are intending to travel internationally as individuals and/or where no entry to events is required to be made by Cycling New Zealand are advised to review the “Guidelines for International Travel” issued by Sport NZ on 24th March, with specific attention to Section 3 and the advice that should be considered prior to any departure from NZ. We also recommend these riders watch the Covid-19 H&S and Risk Mitigation online workshop to ensure they have considered all the risks associated with traveling at this time. We also recommend you review the following in relation to your intended event to ensure you fully understand the risk of travelling to your intended event/destination at this time:
The current travel advice from the New Zealand Government
