Which you can book here.  You must also quarantine at home for 10 days. This applies whether or not you have been fully vaccinated.

What does the traveller have to do?

For amber country arrivals travellers must take two Covid-19 PCR tests during their 10 day quarantine period. Take the first test on or before day 2 and the second test on or after day 8 of your quarantine period in your own accommodation.

For Green Country arrivals travellers take our Covid-19 PCR test on or before day 2. 

When may I leave quarantine?

If you've arrived from an amber listed country and quarantined for 10 days and received a negative result to both our day 2 and day 8 tests, you may legally leave the place where you are quarantining. 

How do I release from quarantine early? 

You can still voluntarily use the Test to Release  for international travellers. Simply follow the link to order. Take this test on day 5 of your quarantine.  If then your day 2 and day 5 (Test to Release) tests are negative, you can end your quarantine early.
