  • There are some exceptions, on a case-by-case basis, for critical workers, humanitarian reasons, partners or dependent children of visa holders living in New Zealand, and others.

General Requirements


  • Negative COVID-19 Test (RT-PCR) Result taken within 72 hours of departure


Quarantine Requirements

  • Managed isolation and quarantine for a minimum of 7 days for all travelers from the date and time they arrive in New Zealand.
  • While in a managed isolation facility all travelers will be tested for COVID-19. Testing typically happens on or around day 0/1 (arrival), day 3 and day 5/6 (prior to departure from MIQ). If the day 5/6 test result is not received prior to day 7 departure and if they are travelling outside Auckland, people will have a Rapid Antigen Test and be allowed to leave if it is negative.
