New Zealand will reopen its borders to fully-vaccinated travellers next year, according to an article published by the BBC.

New Zealand’s COVID-19 Response Minister, Chris Hipkins told a news conference that fully-vaccinated international travellers will be allowed to enter the country from April 30, 2022, but will have to self-isolate for 7 days upon arrival.

Under this new rule, New Zealanders will find it easier to travel home from early next year as well.

An article published by Reuters stated that from January 12, vaccinated New Zealanders and residence visa holders in Australia can travel to New Zealand while vaccinated New Zealanders and residence visa holders most from other countries will be allowed in from February 13.

The Minister also said that travellers will no longer be required to isolate at state-quarantine facilities but will have to self-isolate other measures will be put in place including self-isolation, a negative pre-departure test, proof of being fully vaccinated, and a COVID-19 test on arrival.
