New Zealanders will soon be able to travel to the Cook Islands without having to quarantine for two weeks.

The announcement has just been made public.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her Cook Islands counterpart Mark Brown have instructed officials to continue working together to put in place all measures required to safely recommence two-way quarantine-free travel in the first quarter of next year.
