Do not travel overseas at this time.

New Zealand is now at Alert Level 4 and New Zealand Government has further strengthened travel restrictions. We now advise that all New Zealanders do not travel overseas at this time and limit domestic travel to essential travel only due to the outbreak of COVID-19, associated health risks and travel restrictions.

The Safe Travel and Immigration New Zealand websites have the latest guidance on travel:

Employees who are seeking or have approved annual leave to travel overseas or domestically are asked to reconsider their need to travel.

Employers are encouraged to discuss in good faith pre-approved staff annual leave and to agree on appropriate action, including granting requests to reverse approved annual leave.
