Travelling from Auckland

The Government has announced several changes to travel restrictions for those living in Auckland in Alert Level 3 needing to move to other parts of the country in Alert Level 2.

The additional permitted travel reasons are for people relocating permanently to undertake tertiary education or study, move to a new property they have purchased or rented, start a new job, shared care-giving arrangements, and people returning home from Alert Level 3 to Alert Level 2.

The changes came into effect at midnight Tuesday 28 September.

Anyone wanting to travel across the border will need:

  • Documentation to prove your reason for travel (eg proof of enrolment or job)
  • To have returned a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of departure
  • Students must notify the hall of residence/accommodation ahead of their pending arrival
  • Must not be unwell.

If you are feeling unwell

Please contact your doctor or Healthline (0800 358 5453) if you are experiencing any respiratory illness (coughs, sore throat, runny nose), loss of smell and/or taste, or any flu-like symptoms such as malaise, fatigue, and/or aches in the body.

If you require wellbeing support, please contact us.

Halls students should notify duty staff if they are self-isolating. If you are identified as a close contact, or a probable or confirmed case please notify the university by emailing the health and safety team at HandS@massey.ac.nz.

Let’s stay strong and stay safe.
