Where can I travel from New Zealand in June 2021?

Find out what there is to know about travelling overseas from New Zealand.

Outside of visiting Australia, New Zealand is currently advising that people do not travel overseas. With the COVID-19 situation overseas constantly changing, the New Zealand government cannot guarantee a swift and prompt return home. Australians aside, the border is currently closed to almost all travellers entering the country.

In this guide you’ll find out whether you can travel outside of New Zealand for leisure, which countries are open to New Zealanders, the transportation options available to you and what to keep in mind if you need to return.

Can I travel for leisure outside of New Zealand?

As a result of the trans-Tasman travel bubble, Australia is the only international destination that the government recommends New Zealanders travel to. Although there isn’t an official ban on international travel, the government highly advises citizens and permanent residents against leaving New Zealand for any other country. Foreign nationals, non-New Zealand citizens and temporary visa holders are encouraged to return home if their borders are open.

Travel to Australia

New Zealanders are free to visit Australia without the need to quarantine or restrictions on states and territories. The two-way travel bubble allows anyone in New Zealand to visit Australia if they’ve been in the country for at least 14 days. Keep in mind that standard entry requirements apply. Passengers are asked to:

  • Follow local COVID-19 guidelines in Australia
  • Monitor symptoms if you’re experiencing those of a cold or flu
  • Test before departure if you have symptoms
  • Potentially self-isolate on arrival in the case that you need to

What you’ll need to know about travelling from New Zealand to…

What transportation options are available from New Zealand?

Flying

Air travel is one of the only modes of transportation when leaving New Zealand. Flights to Australia are now back on a regular schedule. Due to COVID-19, regular flight services from and to any other international destination have greatly diminished. Keep in mind that cancellations are common and return flights are prone to schedule disruption.

Airfares can be found on these sites:

    Ship/cruise/ferry

    Cruising is another option for travelling outside of New Zealand, but many cruise lines have put itineraries on hold.

    With the two-way travel bubble currently in place, we expect to see cruising itineraries to Australia.

    Cruises can be booked via one of the following sites:


    Frequently asked questions about travelling from New Zealand

    What happens if I get sick while travelling?

    In the case that you fall ill with COVID-19 while overseas, chances are that you’ll have to follow that country’s procedure.

    If a medical emergency occurs and you need information on where to go, get in touch with the New Zealand Embassy. Your travel insurance provider will assist in payments and the arrangement of treatments.

    Can I get COVID-19 travel insurance?

    Travel insurance policies vary and most do not cover COVID-19 related claims. To be sure of what you’re covered for, we recommend that you reach out to your insurance provider with any questions.

    What happens if borders to New Zealand close before or while I’m travelling?

    New Zealand citizens or permanent residents are required to quarantine in a managed facility for 14 days upon arrival.

    As the borders are shut with very few exceptions, temporary visa holders may not be allowed back into New Zealand once you’ve departed.
