Covid Recovery Certificate for Travel to New Zealand

Travel to New Zealand despite testing positive for Covid-19. If you have Covid-19 and are still testing positive, you can still travel with a Covid Recovery Letter.

Eligibility

If you have recovered from Covid-19 in the last 7-30 days, you are eligible for a Covid Recovery Certificate for Travel to New Zealand.

What You'll Need

You will need to show us either a PDF, screenshot or photo of your positive Covid test result certificate which clearly states the date of the positive test result. (Photos of the tests themselves are not accepted - it must be a photo of official test result paperwork).

Benefits

The Covid Recovery Certificate replaces the need to show a negative Covid test, so you don't have to stress about calculating which day you have to take your PCR test before your flight to New Zealand. Fill out the form now and receive your certificate within 24 hours.

Please note your certificate must clearly include:

  • the day the certificate is provided (must be within 48 hours of the flight)
  • a statement to the effect that the person has had the coronavirus known as COVID‑19 but is now recovered and is not considered to be infectious
  • the day when there was first a positive result of an accepted COVID-19 test for the coronavirus known as COVID-19 for the person
  • a statement to the effect that, on the day the certificate is provided:
  • it has been at least 7 days since there was a first positive result of an accepted COVID-19 test and;
