Is it safe to travel to the Cook Islands?

Given the increase in COVID-19 cases detected in New Zealand, inbound travel to the Cook Islands is currently suspended.


Are the Cook Islands borders still open?

The Cook Islands Government has indicated that re-opening the border with New Zealand, for quarantine-free travel, will not happen until they are fully confident that there is no community transmission of COVID-19 in New Zealand. This will likely occur when New Zealand is at Alert Level 1. 

All future visitors to the Cook Islands, aged 12 years and above, will need to be fully vaccinated (except those with a medical certificate).

All persons are denied entry into the Cook Islands unless there is an exemption provided (in writing) by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration.

Effective from 11:59pm Monday 13th August 2021 (Cook Islands Time), there will be no exemptions provided for entry into the Cook Islands for a period of 15 days to 11:59pm Tuesday 28th September 2021 (Cook Islands Time).

All requests for entry into the Cook Islands must be sought from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration (Te Kauono Tutara e te Mana Tiaki) on email:
