New Zealand easing restrictions, but remains off-limits to tourists from abroad
New Zealand is easing border quarantine requirements. The changes will make it easier for citizens to return to the country, but health officials gave no date for re-opening international tourism. From next month, most people arriving in the country would need to spend seven days in a quarantine hotel – down from 14 days.
New Zealand has had some of the toughest entry restrictions globally, leading to an outcry and even legal action from people trying to get home.
