Updated border reopening plan announced
It was announced today that the New Zealand border will reopen to vaccinated Kiwis and other current eligible travellers from Australia at 11.59pm on 27 February 2022 and to vaccinated Kiwis in the rest of the world on 13 March 2022.
The requirement for these groups to stay in MIQ will be removed, and replaced with a self-isolation period of 10 days. MIQ requirements will remain for the unvaccinated.
The five-step border reopening plan will allow more families to reunite, sectors and employers to access more skilled workers from offshore, business travel and international events to resume, and more international students to return to New Zealand.
|STEP 1||From 11.59pm, Sunday 27 February 2022||
|STEP 2||From 11:59 pm, Sunday 13 March 2022||
|STEP 3||From 11:59 pm, Tuesday 12 April 2022||
|STEP 4||By July 2022||
|STEP 5||October 2022||
