  • Fodor's new edition will be published soon after international travel recommences to New Zealand in 2022, making it among the first post-pandemic travel guides to the destination.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021 caused a steep drop-off in tourism to many destinations (New Zealand has effectively cancelled all international travel there for most of 2020 and 2021), but surveys have shown an ongoing interest in international travel once it becomes safe again. The number of Americans traveling overseas is expected to increase in mid-2021, once vaccinations have been administered to a wide variety of people.
