After two years of closed borders, New Zealanders can freely travel overseas again in 2022. But COVID-19 has changed how many Kiwis think and feel about international travel, according to a survey by Tower and Pureprofile.
The survey found that 75% of Kiwis feel international travel is dangerous, or they feel nervous, anxious or hesitate at the prospect of flying overseas. However, despite the wariness, 70% said they still consider travelling overseas this year.
