New Zealand reopens borders for international students in 2022

New Zealand Government outlined a five-step process for reopening borders from 28 February 2022, initially for New Zealanders to return from Australia and then from the rest of the world.

The Government also announced a fourth border class exception for up to 5,000 international students to enter New Zealand for study from July this year, in addition to the earlier cohorts approved in 2020 and 2021.

From October 2022 normal visa processing will resume, enabling international students to enroll for study in New Zealand in 2023.

The border reopening steps outlined today enable the international education sector to progressively open through 2022 for the existing cohorts, with a new much larger cohort able to enter New Zealand for study before semester two. More details of the new student cohort will be determined by the Ministers of Education and Immigration and advised in due course.

“There’s also an opportunity for students from Visa Waiver countries such as Japan and South Korea to enter New Zealand from July for short visits of up to three months.

“The Government has demonstrated their commitment to international students and educational institutions in 2023, with normal visa processing resuming in October 2022. This means international students can plan towards being in New Zealand for courses starting in 2023.”

“In addition, from 14 March 2022 students entering New Zealand through the border exception cohorts will have the opportunity to self-isolate, rather than going through Managed Isolation and Quarantine facilities – subject to complying with all the required health and border requirements.”
