Travel across Alert Level boundaries

Personal and business travel across an Alert Level boundary is strictly limited. The Alert Level boundaries are an important way to manage the risk of the virus spreading, so we keep our loved ones and communities safe.

You may only travel across Alert Level boundaries if that travel is permitted. You also need to make sure you have acceptable evidence that you are permitted to cross the boundary. You can apply for an exemption if your reason to cross an Alert Level boundary is not permitted.

You should stay home, unless it is essential to do otherwise.
