New Zealand reopens borders for the first time since 2020

For the first time since they locked down in March 2020, New Zealand’s borders are completely open.

The immigration officials have resumed accepting visa-holding travelers and those with student visas.

It was an “enormous moment,” according to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who also noted that the long period of closure was part of a “cautious process.”

There are no quarantine rules, although the majority of visitors will still need to be fully vaccinated.

The nation’s marine border has also been restored, allowing cruise liners and international pleasure yachts to dock. BKM/ Expat Media
