Border crossings continued to increase in June 2022, reaching the highest for any month since border and travel restrictions were introduced in March 2020, Stats NZ said today.

There were 420,200 border crossings in June 2022 made up of 206,000 arrivals and 214,100 departures. In May 2022, there were 344,800 border crossings. Current numbers are well below the almost 1 million border crossings in June 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Border crossings have increased since the beginning of the year as border restrictions progressively eased,” population indicators manager Tehseen Islam said.
