bubble lifts travel – Media release

14 June 2021

The number of people crossing New Zealand’s
border has climbed since two-way quarantine-free travel opened with Australia
on 19 April 2021, Stats NZ said today.

There were 85,900 border crossings in April
2021, made up of 47,000 arrivals and 38,900 departures. Total border crossings
were well up compared with the earlier months of 2021, which averaged 26,300
border crossings a month.

“Despite this increase, arrivals and departures
are significantly lower than levels before COVID-19, when border crossings
were as high as 1.2 million in April,” population indicators manager Tehseen
Islam said.
