Amid Rising COVID-19 Cases New Zealand Suspends Entry of Indians


New Zealand on April 8 temporarily suspended entry for all Indian travelers, including its own citizens, following a high number of positive COVID-19 cases arriving from there. The suspension starts on April 11 and will be in place until April 28.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the suspension after New Zealand recorded 23 new positive cases at its border, most of them were Indian.

New Zealand has virtually eliminated the virus within its borders and has not reported any community transmission locally. But it’s been reviewing its border settings as more people with infections arrive in New Zealand recently, the majority being from India.
