If pure white beaches, sparkling turquoise waters and tropical rainforests are your idea of a good time, you’re in luck. The paradise overlords in the Cook Islands have just announced the permanent lifting of all Covid-19 restrictions, signalling a brand-new jump forward for the glorious island nation. Hoorah!
The lifting of all vaccination requirements for travel and entry to the islands are the final removal of restrictions for the country, reverting travel conditions back to those far and distant days of the pre-pandemic. After a tough few years of Covid-induced closure, the Cook Islands are ready for business, with this opening-up the final step in what has been a long two years of isolation.
Now, all ye holiday-makers can sunbathe, waterfall-chase and snorkel through colourful tropical reefs like it’s 2018 (aka, when all the *unpleasantness* was just a twinkle in the edge of the sky), with it announced that extra flights have been added from late October for all the keen Kiwis and Aussies who are long overdue for a pristine island vacay.
Now, all you’ve gotta do is grab your best reef-safe sunscreen, book in that leave, and buy a lovely broad-brimmed hat. Your Cook Islands adventure awaits.
