The New Zealand customs officers have acquired the right to dig in personal information of tourists


Changes in the customs law of New Zealand which have come into force since October 1, 2018 will allow customs officers to demand passwords from mobile devices of passengers. The Sun reports about it. "Travelers who will refuse to provide the password will be fined five thousand New Zealand dollars (3218 US dollars) and can face confiscation of the device" — the representative of the New Zealand customs service Terry Brown has said. However Council of New Zealand for civil liberties (NSW Council for Civil Liberties) has shown discontent with innovations. "Modern smartphones contain a lot of confidential information, including e-mail, messages and personal photos" — the chairman of the board Thomas Bigl has explained. It is noted that earlier New Zealand customs officers could stop someone on border and demand them to get devices, however they had no right to ask them to provide the password. Since the beginning of year passport control in the USA has become tougher. Employees of security service have received power to confiscate any gadgets from the passengers who have refused to provide the password from the device.
