New Zealand’s border restrictions, assertive contact tracing and monitored self-isolation are central to the Government’s approach of keeping COVID-19 out and slowing any progression. 

The New Zealand Government has implemented an alert level system which specify the public health and social measures required to fight COVID-19. 

New Zealand is now at Alert Level 2. This means everyone, including visitors to Auckland,  are now able to leave their homes or accommodation to do more things and access more services.  

The aim of these alert levels  is to help slow the potential spread of COVID-19 and government authorities are strictly enforcing these measures. 

Alert Level 2 means most businesses are open but there are still physical distancing rules, hygiene standards and contact registers in place to keep businesses and customers safe. You can do your part by supporting local business safely and by continuing to practice the 2m social distancing rules when you’re out and about. 

We know this may be a worrying or confusing time for international visitors to Auckland and New Zealand. Help and advice is available. Below are links to key information and details of important government websites to visit for the most up-to-date advice.
