Reconnecting New Zealand
The New Zealand Traveller Declaration is an important part of the New Zealand Government’s plan for re-opening borders, providing an online platform for the collection and assessment of travellers’ public health risk.
On 12 August 2021, the Government announced its plan – Reconnecting New Zealanders to the World – to safely reopen our borders and develop new ways for people to travel to and from Aotearoa New Zealand
This included a new framework for travel. To support this, the New Zealand Traveller Declaration system was developed to collect information from individual passengers prior to departing for New Zealand.
