New Zealand: Opening up on 16 January 2022

If you are Australian or New Zealander and fully vaccinated, then you should be able to enter New Zealand from 16 January 2022, without having to complete 14 days of quarantine (MIQ).

But you will need to conform to a testing and isolation routine

From 16 January:

  • negative pre-departure test
  • fully vaccinated proof required
  • test on arrival
  • 7 days isolation + negative test on final day

From 13 February, there will be self-isolation, not Managed Isolation and Quarantine (MIQ), with more details to come

  • fully vaccinated New Zealanders
  • eligible travellers from other countries
  • Testing regime to be announced

From 30 April

All fully vaccinated can enter – testing and other conditions to be announced

This is hot on the news that Air New Zealand cancelled over 1000 flights between now and Christmas yesterday.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Good news – especially for me when I have a twice delayed trip set for June 2022
