The government has announced a travel bubble will start with the Cook Islands on the 17th May.
The move will allow two-way quarantine-free travel between both countries.
New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern made the announcement today.
To ensure safety, New Zealand will be providing the Cook Islands with enough vaccine to immunise its population. This will start later this month.
There will be no requirement for a pre-departure Covid-19 test. However, travellers will have to provide a health declaration and there will be random health checks at airports.
No one should travel if they are unwell, if they are waiting on a Covid-19 test, or if they have been in contact with anyone suspected to have Covid-19.
