Updated 12th August.
New Zealand is currently in lockdown level 2, which is almost normal life within our borders. Exception to this is the Auckland region currently in level 3.
Border restrictions are being eased progressively, allowing certain categories of travellers into the country, subject to quarantine on arrival
While New Zealand is closed to most categories of travellers, some exceptions apply. Note that a strict 2-week quarantine on arrival is also in place.
With New Zealand being a physically isolated country surrounded by ocean, combined with strong border control measures, we have been relatively spared from the virus. The government has been providing fantastic (financial) support to employers and employees and there are strong economic and social plans in place to ensure any impact on New Zealand is minimised. We are indeed lucky to call this country home and are proud of how everyone is bonding together and supporting one another. Even more reason to call New Zealand home!
