NZ Govt urges all Kiwis overseas who want to come home to jump on a flight ASAP

scandal 18/03/2020

All Kiwis overseas who wish to return home are being urged to jump on a flight ASAP.

International border restrictions are leading to a massive reduction in passenger numbers, Safe Travel warns, meaning many airlines will not remain commercially viable for long.

"The options for New Zealanders to get home are reducing dramatically."

"We are therefore urging New Zealanders travelling overseas to consider returning home as soon as possible.

"Travelling New Zealanders should work with their travel agents and airlines to discuss options for returning home."

You can find out more about getting home at the Safe Travel website.

Everyone returning or travelling to New Zealand (excluding from the Pacific Islands) is required to self-isolate for the 14 day quarantine period.

New Zealand citizens and permanent residents are requested to register with Healthline upon arrival and undertake two weeks of self-isolation starting from their date of departure. The 14 day self-isolation period also applies to all overseas visitors.
