The Premier of Niue Dalton Tagelagi and the Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern have announced passengers from Niue can resume quarantinefree travel into New Zealand on Tuesday 23 March Niue time (Wednesday 24 March New Zealand time).
Premier of Niue Dalton Tagelagi says Niue is unique as one of the few countries in the world that is completely free of COVID-19.
“This COVID-19 Free status is significant for the ongoing health and safety of Niue as well as the opportunities it creates for trade and the resumption of travel destination to New Zealand,” says Premier Dalton.
Prime Minister Ardern adds that Niue has no reported cases of COVID-19. “Niue has no reported cases of COVID-19 and its stringent border controls mean we can be confident it is safe to commence quarantine-free travel to New Zealand from Niue,” Jacinda Ardern said.
Premier Dalton Tagelagi said, “Niue welcomes being able to travel to New Zealand without the need to quarantine. Niue is one of the few countries in the world that is completely free of COVID-19 and we pride ourselves on protecting our people through maintaining our borders and health system. This one-way quarantine free travel will enable Niueans to receive essential healthcare, access education and economic opportunities, and reconnect with their families in New Zealand.” Premier Tagelagi adds that Niue will maintain its current border settings, so only returnees with Government approval may enter Niue and will need to quarantine or self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.
