List of permitted personal travel across an Alert Level boundary

If your reason for travel is permitted, you are allowed to cross the boundary. You just need to check what evidence you need to have.

The permitted reasons for personal travel across the Alert Level boundary are listed on this page.

Unless it says otherwise, you can travel across the boundary in either direction.

If your reason for travel is listed on this page then you are already allowed to cross the boundary — you do not need to apply for an exemption. You just need to check whether you need a COVID-19 test, and what evidence you need to carry.
