Overseas vaccinations

If you have received a COVID-19 vaccination overseas, you will still need to secure a voucher and complete 14 days in New Zealand’s Managed Isolation and Quarantine Facilities.

It is too early to confirm if a vaccinated person can still transmit COVID-19. This means that even if you have received a COVID-19 vaccination overseas, you will still need to secure a voucher and complete 14 days in New Zealand’s Managed Isolation and Quarantine facilities.

You will still be required to undergo regular testing at the facilities, which for most people is around Day 0/1, Day 3, and Day 12.

Being vaccinated does not remove the need for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), regular testing and other precautions.
