The tourism industry wants restrictions at the border lifted.

Tourism Export Council chief executive, Lynda Keene, says many countries have opened up, including Australia, the UK, Canada and Singapore, with no Covid-19 testing requirements.

She told Mike Hosking New Zealand is slower with our decision-making, which is frustrating for offshore travel partners.

Keene says Australia's rolling out the carpet and it's very clear it's open.

However, she says there's still confusion about this country, which puts our international tourism rebuild at risk.
