Vaccination mandate scrapped for Cook Islands

COVID-19 vaccination requirements have been removed and no longer apply for travel and entry to the Cook Islands. 

This change applies to travellers entering by aircraft and sea vessels and came into effect on September 6 2022. Cook Islands borders re-opened to international visitors from May 2 2022. 

The news comes as air lift into the country has been increased, with Air Rarotonga’s new route from Rarotonga (RAR) to Pape’ete (PPT) launching on August 13.  

The South Pacific destination, located between New Zealand and Hawaii lures visitors with its authentic Polynesian culture, warm hospitality of the locals, year-round tropical climate, stunning beaches and breath-taking jungle-clad interiors.  

With no big chain restaurants or hotels and a local folk-law stating that no building be taller than a coconut tree, it is often said to be how Hawaii was 50 years ago
