travel up in May – Media release

14 July 2021

The total number of people crossing New Zealand’s
border continued to pick up in May 2021 with the opening of two-way quarantine-free
travel with Australia, Stats NZ said today.

“Trans-Tasman travel made up more than 90
percent of all border crossings in May 2021,” population indicators manager
Tehseen Islam said.

There were 189,500 total border crossings
in May 2021, made up of 91,300 arrivals and 98,200 departures.

“This was more than double the total border
crossings in April 2021 but still well down on May 2019 which had almost
1 million.”
