Travel to New Zealand
How to plan your travel to NZ and what will happen when you arrive.
New Zealand’s borders are currently closed to almost all travellers to help keep New Zealand safe. Arrivals are required to complete managed isolation for 7 days followed by self-isolation in the community until a negative day 9 test result is received.
Travellers are legally required to have a voucher confirming their place in managed isolation before boarding their flight. There are only a small number of exceptions to this requirement (e.g. diplomats).

What you should, and shouldn’t, bring when you come to New Zealand.
Self-isolation is part of the Government’s 'Reconnecting New Zealanders' plan for 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.
