Leaving isolation

Advice on when you will be able to leave managed isolation.

Leaving managed isolation

Once you have completed 14 days in managed isolation and returned a negative final COVID-19 test, you will be able to leave managed isolation.

You'll be asked for details about your onward travel plans and where you will be staying. If you need help with accommodation, our team can support you with making arrangements.

You must not leave your facility unless authorised.

Limited exemptions from managed isolation

Only limited exemptions from managed isolation are available.

This is to ensure we balance the needs of people facing exceptional circumstances with the need to protect the New Zealand public from COVID-19.

Transport home

Transport will be provided back to the airport you arrived at, if you wish.

Otherwise, travel home on completion of your stay is at your own expense and organised by you. Our onsite support team will work with you to confirm your travel arrangements.
