Covid Update 2 March: travel protocols for building and construction

Travel between Auckland and the rest of NZ is restricted

Business Travel Documents from the lockdown in February remain valid. 

Travel between the Auckland region and the rest of the country is currently heavily restricted. If you wish to travel in or out of Auckland for building or construction business, you will need to have proof that you either fit into a permitted activity or have a specific exemption to travel.

Permitted activities for building and construction

When making an application for an exemption, you will need to explain the purpose of your intended travel. Please make sure you provide as much detail as possible, including all available supporting information, so that we can assess whether the travel is essential and relates to critical activity. If you don’t provide enough information or that information is incorrect, your application may be delayed.
