Returning from Overseas?

A number of countries and territories, including Australia, have announced they are closing their borders to, or introducing restrictions on, foreign nationals travelling from or transiting through countries or territories that have confirmed cases of COVID-19.

A number of these border restrictions apply to New Zealanders, including those seeking to transit through these countries or territories to New Zealand, as well as those arriving via cruise ship.

For information on countries and territories which have COVID-19 related border restrictions, including for travellers in transit, please check the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website before you travel. For information on Australian border restrictions, visit the Australian Home Affairs website. As border restrictions continue to change, sometimes with little or no notice, please check these websites regularly.

Before travelling you should also consult your airline, travel agent and travel insurance provider to find out what assistance or support they provide (if any) in case your travel is disrupted. You should also consult the official website or the nearest Embassy or Consulate of your country or territory of destination to find out about any border controls that may apply to you.

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade does not provide immigration advice for entry to other countries and territories. The border authorities of the country or territory you are travelling to determine your eligibility for entry.
