A quartet of bikies on their way to a Hell's Angels funeral in Queensland have been sent back to New Zealand.

The four men arrived at Brisbane airport on Friday evening on flights from Auckland but were stopped by immigration officials who identified them as outlaw motorcycle gang members with significant criminal histories.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said officials remained vigilant to incoming travellers who might pose a threat to the Australian community and had removed the men within 48 hours.
