Abortion

Te whakatahe

You can also call 0800 DECIDE (0800 332 433) 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and 9am until 1pm on Saturday if you need more information about abortion. 


Most regions in Aotearoa New Zealand have an abortion service. Abortion is a well-established and safe health care procedure, which you can access directly without referral from a doctor.

COST


Abortion services are free for most New Zealand citizens and residents.


You may need to pay for an ultrasound scan and prescription fees. Your abortion provider should let you know if there are any costs.


If you are not a New Zealand citizen or resident (non-resident), or on a minimum two-year working visa you will likely have to pay for an abortion and any aftercare costs. Abortion costs for non-New Zealand residents vary between NZ$950 and $5,500, depending on the provider and type of abortion.
