“Under Covid-19 level 1 restrictions, more than 16,500 requests have been made to Immigration NZ for border exemptions for people entering New Zealand.

Of those, about 2600 have been approved. Many of those people have been linked to the film industry or America’s Cup, and it is adding to the frustrations of many New Zealand families who are separated by the border closures.

For Aucklander Ruth McDowall the separation has been a long one.” – RNZ
