Tourism operators are welcoming the return of international accents again.

New Zealand is opening up to visitors from around 60 visa-waiver countries from today.

Like Australians, international tourists can arrive without isolation, if they're vaccinated and do a pre-departure and arrival test for Covid-19.

Kerre Woodham caught up with tourism operators who had called her during the pandemic in 2020, namely Bevan Newlands of Skyscape.co.nz; Blair Huston, Managing Director of Fortis Travel and Justin Hutton, owner of River Rats Rotorua.
