From 1 November 2021, non-New Zealand citizens aged 17 years and over must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter New Zealand.

New Zealand permanent residents and temporary visa holders are not New Zealand citizens and will need to declare vaccination or exemption (evidence of either will be required):

  • when booking places in managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ)
  • when checking in for the flight, and
  • to Customs officers in New Zealand.

The last dose of an approved course of vaccine must have been taken at least 14 days before travel. Travellers who fail to meet requirements will not be permitted to board their flight.
