New Caledonia has reopened its borders for fully vaccinated international visitors and dropped all quarantine restrictions.
Australian travellers will be required to perform either a PCR test valid for less than 72 hours before departure or a Rapid Antigen Test valid for less than 48 hours before departure.
“It is a big day for the country as restrictions are being lifted,” said Julie Laronde, New Caledonia Tourism’s general manager.
“After more than two years of Covid closure, it is a very exciting time and the opportunity to rebuild tourism to New Caledonia. We cannot wait to welcome our Australians neighbours back to our shores.”
Non-vaccinated travellers will still require a compelling motive to travel to New Caledonia and will need to complete a 7-day quarantine on arrival.
