As of today Australians can re-enter New Zealand! This is great news as we look forward to the borders finally re-opening on 1 May for those of us from North America eager to visit New Zealand.
We are also happy to see this morning that Air New Zealand has announced the country’s Covid-19 settings are being relaxed, and the airline will adjust some of its domestic and international travel requirements for customers:
Note: Masks will still be required onboard domestic and international flights.
[Original Post from March 16, 2022]: Yesterday New Zealand announced that it has accelerated the timeframe which travelers from the USA/Canada can enter the country! Originally this was an October date, however with the rest of the world (read: Australia) opening up, New Zealand has re-evaluated its stance and pulled its own date to first July, and now May.
We couldn't be more excited! Here’s what you need to know before you start planning your next trip…
Each of these requirements will need to be met in advance:
1. Travel Declaration must be complete before you depart.
2. Pre-departure testing. Proof of a negative Covid-19 test prior to departure is needed. This can be a Rapid Antigen Test, LAMP or PCR test.
3. Proof of vaccination
The above are in addition to the New Zealand eTA.
