New Zealand is Re-Opening

New Zealand is Re-Opening

Mar 17, 2022    Nathan Bitcheno

Tēnā koutou,


After 2 long years New Zealand Government have finally announced the re-opening of New Zealand’s borders.

We are thrilled to confirm from 11.59pm on 1 May visitors from all visa waiver countriesare able to return to New Zealand. And from 11.59pm on 12 April 2022 visitors from Australia are able to return travelling to our shores. This is incredibly exciting news, and we cannot wait to welcome clients back to Aotearoa.

Arrivals will need to be fully vaccinated and complete negative pre-departure and arrival rapid antigen tests, full details around these requirements will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

At Pacific Destinations, we have been very fortunate to be able to keep a number of our talented team on board… everyone is standing by and can’t wait to get back to working with you again as our industry bounces back from the past two years.

Thank you again for supporting us through what has been a very difficult period.
We will be back in touch regularly over the coming weeks, but if you have any questions at all in the interim, please don’t hesitate to email 

Let’s get back to business!

Nau mai, haere mai
