There is some good news for people wanting to travel to New Zealand to visit, study, work or settle.

Fully vaccinated foreign nationals, including international students, will be able to visit New Zealand without a stay in MIQ from April 30. This part of the reopening will happen in a “staged way”, according to Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins. Like all travellers to New Zealand, they will need to take a pre-departure test to prove they are double dosed, and fill in the travel declaration form. They will also need to self-isolate for seven days.


In other news, New Zealand is also moving to a new traffic light system to manage COVID 19 more effectively without lockdowns.


If you are planning to study in New Zealand, now is a good time to consider starting with an online graduate or post graduate programme that allows you to start now with lesser tuition fee and scholarship options while continuing the rest of the programme in New Zealandpost April 30th 2022 when the borders open up.
