The government is ending the need for people to fill out a departure card when leaving the country.
Each year there are over 6.5 million departure cards filled out.
But Customs Minister Meka Whaitiri said the cards are no longer needed to account for all people crossing the New Zealand border.
She said they now have smarter systems which can identify information and travel movements electronically.
The requirement to fill out cards will be end in November.
The Government says it will save more than 100,000 hours of time and allow a faster and smoother process.
