Tourism New Zealand's response to COVID-19

Tourism New Zealand and the wider tourism industry continue to adapt to the challenges of COVID-19.

How we’re supporting the tourism sector

  • We've refocused industry webinars to provide updates on the current COVID-19 situation. It's great to be able to get together to have this discussion and answer your questions.   
  • The tourism advisory support service(opens in new window) delivered by Qualmark is still available to you free of charge if you haven't taken up the offer yet. This service has been extended to include a new phase of practical support designed to help you understand more about your digital ecosystem with the aim of lifting the level of digital capability for the tourism industry.
  • Qualmark have also launched COVID Clean Approved(opens in new window), a self-assessment tool that allows Qualmark licence holders to work through a series of questions on COVID-19 related topics that are relevant to their operations processes, customer interaction and staff wellbeing. By completing this assessment, it communicates to both staff and visitors that the operator is aware of and working to take measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • As New Zealand’s response evolves we will keep you updated on our activity and support through Tourism News.
  • We're continuing to provide advice and support to our Business Events partners, including development of an infographic outlining how events can run at different COVID-19 alert levels.
