Come on in, the doors are open!

Dear paddlers,


While New Zealand’s borders are open there have been some restrictions to certain countries, those will now be lifted and the borders will be fully open from 31st July 2022. That means NO restrictions at all.


Visitors will be able to apply to enter New Zealand from anywhere in the world from midnight 31st July 2022 (NZ time).


No Covid-19 pre-departure testing is required when flying to New Zealand after 31st July 2022.
