After two years of what has been some of the world's strictest lockdown measures, New Zealand has finally reopened for tourism.

As of May 2nd, vaccinated travelers who arrive with a negative COVID test from 60 visa-waiver countries including the US and Canada can enter the country.

Requirements to Enter New Zealand:

  • New Zealand requires all travelers 17 and older to carry full proof of vaccination.

  • All travelers must take a pre-departure test. This can be a rapid antigen test (RAT) taken no more than 24 hrs before scheduled departure. A polymerase chain reaction test (PCR) taken no more than 48 hrs before scheduled departure. Or a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) taken no more than 24 hrs before scheduled departure.

  • All travelers must also complete the New Zealand Traveler Declaration form before traveling to New Zealand and be issued a New Zealand Traveler Pass.

  • Upon arrival, travelers will be given two rapid antigen tests (RAT). One test is to be taken on the arrival day or day 1 and the second is to be taken on day 5 or 6. *Children under 6 months do not need to self-test on arrival.

For more information on what to do if you test positive for COVID while in New Zealand, you can follow this government guide.
