Sumary of New Zealand to reopen to tourists in April:
- New Zealand has announced it will reopen borders to visitors vaccinated against Covid-19 in the opening months of 2022. It will be the first time the country has been open to travellers since prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, announced a snap closure in the first month of the pandemic last year.
- The move comes as the country moves away from a ‘zero-Covid-19’ strategy and begins cautiously reopening to the world.
- Ardern also confirmed that residents of Auckland will be able to leave the city from mid-December after months of Covid-19 lockdown travel restrictions.
- New Zealanders can travel home from Australia without staying in managed isolation from January 17th.
