New Zealand’s borders are now officially open and welcoming back all international travelers.

The border was fully reopened on the 31st of July, three months earlier than previously announced.

Earlier this year, New Zealand’s borders were opened to Australians and citizens of 60 places that do not need visas, including Singapore, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

The 1st of August will see the opening of the maritime border to cruise ships, specialist vessels, and recreational vessels such as ocean-going yachts.

Borders have been closed for two years and four months as part of the Covid-19 border restrictions.

The rules 

With the exception of New Zealand citizens and Australians living in the country, visitors must provide proof of vaccination to enter.

Both electronic and paper vaccination certificates are acceptable. 

Travellers need to do a rapid antigen test on their arrival date — although not necessary upon arrival at the airport — and a second one on the fifth or sixth day of their trip.
