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

New Zealand is now at Alert Level 1 of the New Zealand Government’s system which specify the public health and social measures required to fight COVID-19. This means everyone, including visitors to Auckland, is able to move about freely with no restrictions.   

However, the New Zealand border remains closed to anyone other than a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, or those granted a special exemption. 

Alert Level 1 means all businesses are open but there are still  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  social distancing when you’re out and about.
