OK, I stand corrected. I never paid for entry into any SoPac country, NZ & OZ included. Indonesia was just a few pennies as was Egypt and most Med countries except Greece. Turkey was US$1.00 for a hundred miles of coastwise travel.
I guess I'm way out of date and I'm sorry about that. Old timer's disease has overtaken me.
