    Queenstown is preparing to welcome Aucklanders with open arms

    Queenstown is preparing to welcome Aucklanders with open arms


    People fully vaccinated or returning a negative Covid test within 72 hours will be able to travel outside of Auckland from December 15.

    Mayor Jim Boult says it's a very positive announcement and he's hoping for a stampede of Aucklanders.

    He says locals are very aware they're a visitor destination, and have been proactive in getting vaccinated.

    Queenstown-Lakes District hit the 90 percent double dosed milestone yesterday.

    Boult says the DHB is well prepared and has contingency plans in place.
