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.
If your travel is not permitted — but you believe you need to cross the boundary — then you can apply for an exemption.
