The New Zealand government announced on the 28th February 2022 that fully vaccinated eligible travellers to NZ will no longer self-isolate. Travellers will still be required to have a negative pre-departure test and undertake two Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) on arrival, and at Day 5 and Day 6.
We would also like a copy of two RATs taken two days prior to your arrival at Avatar Institute.
This means that you will need to find interim accommodation for the first few days of your stay in New Zealand, and that you cannot arrive on site of your shared accommodation until four days prior to your CAP course commencing.

All international students must have appropriate insurance before arriving in New Zealand that covers all of the below items:
Avatar recommends Uni-Care’s New Zealand Student Plan.

Another option is Orbit Protect.
