People trafficking

We can request a consult if we have concerns about people trafficking.

People trafficking and Aotearoa New Zealand

The Interagency Trafficking in Persons Operations Group is made up of representatives from Immigration New Zealand, New Zealand Police, Oranga Tamariki, Customs, the Department of Internal Affairs and the Labour Inspectorate.

One of the interagency group’s priorities is to raise awareness that people trafficking happens in Aotearoa New Zealand and improve understanding, so we can work together to eliminate this crime.

What is people trafficking

The interagency group has developed a resource that:

  • provides a definition of people trafficking (including child trafficking) and the types of exploitation that adults and children can be trafficked for
  • identifies where people trafficking might be seen, and the signs that may indicate a person has been trafficked
  • outlines the steps that should be taken to report people trafficking to the authorities.
