    Queenstown-Lakes District mayor says pre-departure tests' use-by date is well and truly up


    The tourist town's welcoming news the requirement's going , as it braces for a record ski season.

    Covid-19 Response Minister Ayesha Verrall confirmed tests would be dropped as of next Tuesday morning.

    Mayor Jim Boult says the tests were becoming a waste of time, but he understands the caution.

    He says he doesn't think the tests were putting too many people off coming to New Zealand - but the timing is immaculate as the ski season prepares to kick off.
