Arriving in New Zealand this January? Do not forget to pack your negative COVID19 test!


From 29 January, arriving in New Zealand without evidence of a negative approved Covid-19 test or medical certificate would incur an infringement offence fee or a fine not exceeding $1,000.

If you have received a COVID-19 vaccination you will still need to take a test.

If you return a positive result, you will need a medical certificate verifying that you are not infectious with COVID-19.

You should factor this into your timings, and check with your airlines on any regulations they may have in place regarding vaccinations.
