In the era of Corona Virus, everybody faces lots of difficulties. If we talk about New Zealand. 1st Covid case reported in 28-Feb-2020. Then on 14th of March New Zealand government had decided that everybody must be self isolated who will come from overseas except from pacific countries. After that on 21st of March they strictly closed their borders. That time many of Indians had came to visit their hometown for few days and then they have been stuck here till now. Many of them went back to New Zealand but their family, children or partners are stuck in India.
On 27th of April New Zealand moves to alert level 3 and on 4th of May there was no new case arrived. That time there was a hope for those people who were stuck in overseas, perhaps they again meet their families, partners. Some of those hope they will go back to New Zealand and again start their work and life. But when New Zealand government announced alert level 1 on 21st of September except Auckland and there was no update for those who were stuck in overseas.
Now New Zealand has been announced a corona free country, but borders are remain closed for overseas except Permanent resident and New Zealanders. Students from India go to New Zealand for higher studies; some people go for work, some for tour. They pay a huge amount of money for it. Who lives in New Zealand they pay tax to New Zealand Government as same as New Zealanders or PR in New Zealand. But New Zealand government is not thinking of those who live temporary in New Zealand.
Many of stuck in India and their visas has been expired. Some of them have to pay loan which they took for go to New Zealand.
On 4th February 2021 Health Ministry gives a report that they have been given approval for Covid-19 Vaccine in New Zealand. Dr. Ashley Bloomfield and Med Safe Group Manager Chris James explain how it will work and the whole process. It is a hope for those who stuck in overseas or whose partners and family stuck in India. They are eagerly waiting for the next update from the government.
