International students in New Zealand are now permitted to leave and re-enter the country

International students in New Zealand with a valid study visa are allowed to leave the country and return back starting April 13, 2022.

The news comes as a relief to many students who were stuck in the country due to the border restrictions imposed because of the pandemic and were unable to visit their homes.

With New Zealand’s borders progressively being opened to allow international travel, many international students will get the chance to meet their family and friends in their home country before continuing their studies in NZ.

The students will still be required to be fully vaccinated in order to travel freely. Upon their return to NZ, they will have to self-isolate for 10 days.
