- Travelers arriving from the regions of Nauru, Tuvalu, and American Samoa will not be required to undergo Managed Isolation Quarantine (MIQ) or self-quarantine
Beginning February 27, 2022, at 11:59 PM, the government of New Zealand will allow eligible travelers from Nauru, Tuvalu, and American Samoa to enter the country without undergoing Managed Isolation Quarantine (MIQ) or self-isolation upon arrival. All travelers arriving from these regions must be fully vaccinated. In addition, only travelers arriving from these regions who hold residency in New Zealand will be permitted to enter. These travelers will not have to undergo pre-departure test requirements.
Travelers from these regions, who arrive from a non-quarantine-free travel country, such as Australia or Fiji, will still be subject to quarantine and testing requirements. For additional information, click here.
