Toll bars
Some residential telephone numbers in New Zealand may have “toll bars” attached to them due to some home stay students studying in New Zealand making overseas calls and not accounting for them.

Mobile Phone
The services available to international students include global roaming, purchasing a prepay account or setting up an account with Vodafone or Telecom New Zealand after their arrival into the country.

Prepay phone cards
These are available at most newsagents and public stations. They are very cheap and easy to carry and this makes them very popular with international students.

Stamps are available at supermarkets, newsagents and stations. New Zealand is open for business Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.00pm. International students should note that mail is directly delivered to the street address.

Email may be available in student computer labs, cyber cafes or public libraries as a service at a cost.

Courier services are efficient and they allow for the tracking of items sent locally or internationally.

This may be available at your local institution at no cost to you. Sending faxes otherwise may be extremely expensive for international students.
