Border Patrol

118 episodes x 30mins | TVNZ 1

Top Rating Series Border Patrol returns for an outstanding 11th series.

We follow dedicated border staff working on the frontlines of Border Security around the clock, checking for drugs and illegal goods, and intercepting packages carrying potentially harmful pests and diseases, that if introduced into New Zealand could cripple our economy overnight.  We are with officers as they constantly monitor, identify and screen incoming passengers who may be undesirable arrivals into our country.

Filming for this series took place at Auckland and Christchurch International Airports, Customs Air Cargo Inspection Facilities in Auckland and Christchurch, and the International Mail Centre, in Auckland.

Our cameras are there following Immigration New Zealand staff as they vigilantly monitor passengers arriving at Auckland and Christchurch airports. They deal with everything from fake passports, people with attitude, and illegal sex workers.

Border Patrol, screens on TVNZ1 and TVNZ OnDemand, will continue to give viewers remarkable insights into the exciting frontline job of protecting New Zealand’s border.
