Currently, New Zealand travel restrictions include travel to Queenstown. New Zealand has restricted entry to all travellers who are not New Zealand nationals (Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau), permanent residents, visa holders, and their immediate families. Australian nationals residing primarily in New Zealand and accredited diplomats currently residing in New Zealand may also enter the country. All of the above travellers will be subject to mandatory isolation at a government facility for 14 days upon arrival unless they’re airline crew or people transiting through. Travellers may only transit New Zealand if they’re Australian nationals or residents on their way to Australia, or they have government approval. Airline crew must use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). If you are planning to travel to Queenstown at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.
