This advice came from Island Cruising NZ today, looks like New Cal wants compulsory travel insurance and guessing the repatriation requirement is a ticket to your country of residency. seems like they are imposing similar rules to Tahiti

Worth checking out further if you are going to be voyaging there.

The noose is tightening, if you dream of ocean cruising go soon.

According to a post on the Island cruising association the "repatriation" bit relates to return of a dead body and should be part of the travel insurance. 

 

quote; 

"Repatriation is the returning home of the body, remains or ashes of someone who has died outside of their country or their normal place of residence.

For those who have died overseas and wish to be repatriated to New Zealand, most of the cost can often be covered by their travel insurance policy. Before proceeding, check with the travel insurance provider."

Tahiti used to waive the "return ticket" thing if you were an EU citizen... not sure that's still the case.

As far as I can tell, EU citizens don't have to do this unless staying longer than 3 months.  Sadly I might not be an EU citizen much longer...

 

There is no change in the law, if you look at the date of the Ordinance it is 2002.  I think they are just enforcing the rules whereas they have been a bit patchy in the past.

 

I had a look at some of the French websites, but noonsite actually gives the best summary - https://www.noonsite...ies#Immigration

 

Looks like there are ways of getting round it, but none easy or cheap.  A refundable air ticket on the credit card that you cancel before you get charged could be the best way.
