Everyone entering NZ must self-isolate except those from the Pacific Islands

16 March 2020

NZ Prime Minister Rt Hon Jacinda Adern says all arrivals must self-isolate.

All arrivals to New Zealand must self-isolate for two weeks, with the exception of travellers from the Pacific Islands. People entering the country from the Pacific Islands will be excluded from the restrictions unless they show Covid-19 symptoms.

The New Zealand government’s recent announcement requires all arrivals from every country in the world (with the exception of arrivals from the Pacific islands) to self-isolate for a fortnight. This policy has been in effect from midnight Sunday 15 March.

Prime Minister Rt Hon Jacinda Adern says the Pacific are exempted from this measure, but they are the only ones. Anyone entering from any other country in the world will be required to self-isolate upon arrival in New Zealand.

Prime Minister Ardern also announced cruise ships will not be allowed to dock in New Zealand until at least 30 June and also encourages all New Zealanders to avoid any non-essential travel overseas.

The decision will be reviewed in 16 days, and applies only to passengers.

To date, New Zealand has eight confirmed cases of the virus.
