Jun 16. The government of New Zealand will drop its requirement for arrivals to take a Covid-19 pre-departure test from 11:59pm on Monday (June 20).
New Zealand had planned to drop the rule by July 31 but the date has been brought forward as case numbers fall.
Fully vaccinated travellers from about 60 countries on a visa-waiver list, including the UK, have been able to visit from May 2.
The country’s official Covid website said: “We’ve taken a careful and staged approach to reopening our borders to ensure we aren’t overwhelmed with an influx of Covid-19 cases.
