Kia ora,

On behalf of Hon Dr Ayesha Verrall, Minister for COVID-19 Response thank you for your request under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act) on 19 August 2022, for:

“Please provide the justification for the continuation of the Air Border Workers mandate.”

As of 2 July 2022, border workers in New Zealand are not required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. More information is available at: www.beehive.govt.nz/release/vaccine-mand....

I trust this information fulfils your request. Under section 28(3) of the Act, you have the right to ask the Ombudsman to review any decisions made under this request. The Ombudsman may be contacted by email at: [email address] or by calling 0800 802 602.

Dear Daniel Martin,
The information provided does not fulfill the Official Information request made. You have stated that border workers were no longer mandated from 2 July 2022. The specific request I made was in relation to air border workers. Air border workers are covered by the Air Border Order that states " from 11.59pm, 20 June 2022, the health requirements that apply to New Zealand based aircrew and overseas-based aircrew are the same".

"Requirements on entry for Aircrew

...all aircrew members arriving in New Zealand by air must be vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to arrival in New Zealand."

Please provide the justification for the continuation for the air border worker mandate?

Yours sincerely,

M. Hullen
