New Zealand Reopens Borders After 2 Years of Covid Restrictions

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New Zealand Reopens Borders After 2 Years of Covid Restrictions” – below is their description.

New Zealand will finally begin reopening to the world at the end of this month as frustration mounts over a border that’s been closed for almost two years to keep out Covid-19.

The border will reopen to vaccinated New Zealanders from Australia at midnight on Feb. 27 and from the rest of the world at midnight on March 13, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a speech Thursday in Auckland. Some groups of critical and skilled workers will also be permitted to enter from those dates. Arrivals will no longer need to spend time in a government managed isolation facility, but will be required to self-isolate and return negative tests.
