New Zealand’s border restrictions remain in place for most travellers apart from New Zealand citizens and residents, and people who have been granted an exception to travel here, such as critical health workers.
The border exception for health workers has now been extended to 31 March 2021. This means that current, or new health or disability workers in a role needed to deliver critical services in New Zealand, can now have a start date up to 31 March 2021.
This extension assists recruitment for the health sector before the Christmas and summer holiday period, particularly when appointing new overseas dentists, doctors and other medical professionals.
