Travel Insurance for New Zealand
A visitor visa is not required for stays of up to 6 months in New Zealand, however you must apply for a New Zealand Electronic Travel Authority (NZeTA).

There are many accommodation options available in New Zealand, from hostels to hotels and luxury lodges.

It is important to book your accommodation in advance, especially during the peak tourist season (November to February). Campsites can be found throughout the country, but spaces fill up quickly during busy periods. Hostels are a popular option for budget.

You will not be able to enter New Zealand if you have not been vaccinated - unless you are exempted.

If you fly into New Zealand, you must present proof of your vaccinations to the Traveller Declaration.

You must have had a complete course of an approved COVID-19 vaccination to be able to enter New Zealand. Some vaccines require only a single dose. A booster shot is not required.

My Vaccine Pass is a record of your COVID-19 vaccination. You might be asked to show it if you' are traveling within New Zealand, but there is no legal obligation for businesses to use My Vaccine Pass. However, some might require it as part of the entry process.

Children ages 5 to 11 are not required (not available as well) to get a My Vaccine Pass.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, it is mandatory that you self-isolate for 7 days.

If you cannot stay in your current accommodation, your alternative stay must be close to where you are, and without shared guest facilities.

Anyone traveling with you has to also isolate for 7 days. For more information on New Zealand's COVID-19 guidelines, you can refer to them here.

To get a My Vaccine Pass, you can apply it here.

Although it's not legally required if you're only staying in the country for less than two years (e.g. working holiday visa), we still recommend getting insurance. It is a small price to pay in comparison to your overall vacation costs, and could save you from facing high bills or stress later on down the road.

A mutual assistance agreement between New Zealand and Australia gives Australian citizens access to urgent medical care, and there is no comparable health treatment agreement in place with other nations. So, before you leave home, make sure you get a travel insurance plan.
