Register for Rio

Now is the time to register for Rio 2016 as we prepare to submit New Zealand's ticket order. Registrations need to be received before Monday 1 December 2014.


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 5 - 21 August 2016

Unlike other Games and sporting events, there may not be an opportunity to request subsequent tickets so it is important you clarify your requirements at the initial registration stage.

Accommodation in Rio will be in hot demand, especially over the Olympic Games period. NZ Olympic Travel is currently trying to secure accommodation for New Zealanders which will be available as part of a package with tickets. It is important to let us know in your initial registration if you would like us to arrange your accommodation, minimum stays will apply. Further information will be available in 2015 and if you have registered we will contact you to provide options.
