Changes to MIQ requirements in 2022
The New Zealand Government has announced the following changes to MIQ requirements from early next year.
From 17 January 2022 - fully vaccinated New Zealand citizens, and other eligible travellers, will be able to travel from Australia to New Zealand without entering managed isolation.
From 14 February 2022 - fully vaccinated New Zealand citizens, and other eligible travellers, will be able to travel to New Zealand from around the world without entering managed isolation.
Further details around other fully vaccinated travellers travelling to New Zealand from the end of April 2022 will be announced closer to the time.
For all travellers not required to enter MIQ, you will require the following:
- Proof of being fully vaccinated
- A negative pre-departure COVID-19 test result
- A passenger declaration about your travel history
- A day 0/1 test upon arrival
- Self-isolate for 7 days
- A final negative test before entering the community
