Criminal conviction
Hi there, wanting to know the procedures for criminal conviction, my partner and I have drink driving charge which is over 7 years old. We have an adopted 6 year old daughter who is half Rarotongan and thought it would be nice to take her here on next school holidays. Do we have to disclose this and will it effect our entry to Rarotonga?

Is my partner able to enter the cook islands
Hi my partner has an aggravated robbery charge from 2009 and went to prison for 2.4years. He has since turned his life around and has no more serious offences , just one for driving while over the legal limit. We are wanting to travel to Rarotonga for our honeymoon next year (2019) so it will be 10 years after his conviction. Will he be allowed to enter the Cook Islands?
