New Zealand Lifts Pre-Departure Testing Requirement

Travelers entering New Zealand no longer need to test negative prior to arrival.


New Zealand Lifts Pre-Departure Testing Requirement

Beginning Monday, June 20, travelers entering New Zealand will no longer need to take a COVID-19 test prior to arrival.

Unvaccinated individuals are now allowed to transit through New Zealand.

Travelers are currently still required to test themselves upon arrival or on the first day of their trip and on the fifth or sixth days of arrival. If they test positive at either time, they are required to take a PCR test to verify their results. They are also still required to complete the New Zealand Traveler Declaration form prior to arrival.

Travelers exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 during travel now have two options to prove they don't have COVID-19: presenting a negative test result or a certificate from a health professional explaining why it's unlikely they have the virus.

All travelers to New Zealand are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, obtain a traveler visa and adhere to the post-arrival testing requirements.
