The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has tonight confirmed there are no indications, at this stage, that any New Zealanders are among victims of the terror attack in Nice, France.

An MFAT spokesman said just before 11pm authorities had followed up all enquiries lodged with it about Kiwis thought to be Nice during today's attack, in which more than 80 people were killed.

"The Ministry continues to advise that anyone with concerns about a New Zealand family member in Nice should try and make direct contact in the first instance.''

New Zealanders currently in France are being urged to register their names on the www.safetravel.govt.nz website.

MFAT said there were 925 New Zealanders currently registered with the Ministry as being in France.

• Anyone with ongoing concerns can contact MFAT on: (04) 439 8000.
