WELLINGTON, 16th March, 2022 (WAM) -- New Zealand said on Wednesday it would open its border for some visitors earlier than previously forecast, hoping an influx of tourists will boost the economy, Reuters reported.

Vaccinated Australians can travel to New Zealand from 12th April and then from 1st May tourists from visa-waiver countries such as the United States and Britain will be able to visit, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said at a press conference.

The border was not expected to fully reopen until October under the current plan but Ardern said this could be brought forward.
