Here at Piha Surf Academy, we are dedicated to looking after our customers and team during the evolving situation of COVID-19 all across our brands
Following the Ministry of Health guidelines, we are assisting international travellers to still enjoy New Zealand and protect themselves and others during their self-isolation period and remaining stay.
Lates Travel Restrictions in New Zealand
The New Zealand Government has further strengthened travel restrictions, closing our border to almost all travellers from 23:59 on Thursday 19 March 2020. All affected travellers must have checked in for their flight to New Zealand by this time.
Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis by Immigration New Zealand for:
health and other essential workers
citizens of Samoa and Tonga for essential travel to New Zealand
the holder of a visitor visa who is the partner of dependent of a temporary work or student visa holder and who normally lives in New Zealand and is currently in New Zealand.
No other foreign traveller can enter New Zealand.
Returning residents and citizens must isolate themselves for 14 days upon arrival.
Currently our surf lessons are operating as per usual. We're monitoring the development of the COVID-19 situation closely and will update you on any changes as soon as possible.
Stay up To Date
We highly recommend all travellers to stay up to date on the guidelines:
