Businesses are welcoming back the ability to travel internationally without MIQ.
Fully vaccinated Kiwis will be able travel home from Australia without MIQ from January 16, and from all other countries from February 13.
All other fully vaccinated travellers will be able to come here from April 30.
All must still self-isolate for seven-days.
Christchurch exporter Enztech chief executive Iain McMillan told Kate Hawkesby this is great news.
“We probably look to be travelling in January to Australia; it’s a nice little warm-up market for us.”
