Self-Isolation Pilot numbers – 4 October 2021
Published: 04 October 2021
Numbers as at 9.30am, Monday 4 October.
Self-isolation is part of the Government’s 'Reconnecting New Zealanders' plan for safely re-opening borders and allowing more people to visit and return home to New Zealand without the requirement to enter into MIQ. The Self-Isolation Pilot will test some of the systems and processes that would be needed to roll out self-isolation more widely.
The pilot is primarily aimed at travellers required to travel internationally from New Zealand for business purposes, including sole traders.
On return to New Zealand, these travellers will be required to self-isolate at an approved location for 14 days.
Participants will be selected through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process. As an employer, you will need to apply on behalf of your employees.
The EOI process is open from 9am Thursday 30 September 2021 to 5pm Saturday 9 October 2021.
- 413 Expressions of Interest received
- Representing 505 people
- By arrival airport:
- 86% Auckland
- 14% Christchurch
Please note no decisions will be made until after the deadline for EOIs which is 5pm, Saturday 9 October 2021.
If you have submitted an EOI, you will hear by Friday 15 October whether your EOI has been provisionally selected for the pilot.
