New Zealand Border Reopening 2022

As of 4th of May 2022, the following people can enter New Zealand:

  • Vaccinated and unvaccinated New Zealand citizens

  • Vaccinated New Zealand residents

  • Vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents

  • Current temporary work and student visa holders, with a valid visa who can still meet their visa requirements. This includes both visa holders currently offshore, and those in New Zealand who choose to travel overseas and wish to return

  • Up to 5,000 international students, for semester 2

  • Vaccinated travellers with a border exception

  • Vaccinated travellers on a working holiday scheme

  • Vaccinated travellers from countries who do not need a visa (visa waiver visitors)

  • Vaccinated travellers from other countries who already hold a valid visitor visa

  • Other vaccinated eligible travellers under current border settings

Below is what we should look forward to:

  1. From July 2022, vaccinated travellers arriving under the Accredited Employer Work Visa categories can enter New Zealand and self-test on arrival.

  2. From October 2022 onwards, all visa categories will reopen, including visitor and student visas.
