The Tourism Minister says he's working hard to rebuild brand New Zealand.  

He says he should be able to make an announcement about the fate of overseas travellers from Australia and non-visa waiver countries in March .  

Vaccinated Kiwis living around the world are able to return from Saturday with no isolation, those in Australia can head home isolation-free from Thursday.  

Stuart Nash told Mike Hosking tourism won't be fixed overnight. 

“Don’t expect tourism to look like it did pre-Covid, the boss at Heathrow said he’s expecting five years, Australia it’s still quiet over there, quieter than they thought it would be.”
