Latest Updates

Last updated 4 October 2021

The New Zealand border is currently closed to almost all arrivals.

From April 2021, travellers to New Zealand from very high risk countries are temporarily restricted to New Zealand citizens, their partners, dependent children and those with significant humanitarian reasons. Further information on the entry requirements to New Zealand can be found on the government website.

Covid-19 antigen tests are not accepted for those travelling to New Zealand from the UK. Alternatively, you can test for Covid-19 using one of our PCR test kits which must be taken within 72 hours before departing the UK. Failure to provide a negative Covid-19 test may result in travellers being refused entry to New Zealand.

From 4am on Monday 4 October 2021, the rules for international travel to England have changed from the red, amber, green traffic light system to a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world. The rules for travel from countries and territories not on the red list will depend on your vaccination status. Fully vaccinated travellers can book a day 2 test with free delivery. Not fully vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers can book their return antigen tests and day 2 and 8 travel packages with Medicspot. Further details can be found on our Covid test page.
