The New Zealand High Commission Office has announced the pre-departure requirements for Samoa and Tokelau under the one-way quarantine-free travel bubble announced last month.

Last month New Zealand’s Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins confirmed the one-way travel with low-risk Pacific Island countries, resuming on the 8th of November, from Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu and Tokelau.

This week’s announcement clarifies that eligible travelers are limited to New Zealand citizens, holders of New Zealand resident visas, and holders of critical purpose visas can enter New Zealand quarantine-free from Samoa as well as Tokelau. Samoans wishing to travel to New Zealand under a visitors visa are not included in the quarantine-free bubble.

• Travellers must be fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to departure, unless they are New Zealand citizens.
