New Zealand declared on February 3rd that it will reopen its borders to the rest of the world after nearly two years of strict border controls.
On Thursday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern outlined a five-step strategy that will allow fully vaccinated New Zealand people to begin traveling from Australia later this month, according to CNN. They will, however, need to self-isolate when they arrive. They will not be required to visit a state-run quarantine center.
They claim that by July, fully vaccinated individuals from Australia or visa-exempt countries, such as the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and a slew of other European countries, will have arrived.
