Primary sector businesses, services, and support services

Advice for primary sector businesses, services and support services through the COVID-19 Alert Levels.


Auckland has now moved from Alert Level 2 to join the rest of New Zealand at Alert Level 1.

Businesses and workers need to continue to comply with the Government’s COVID-19 alert level settings and observe any protocols for their particular industry.

COVID-19 Alert Levels summary

Register to travel

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has developed a Business Travel Register to enable businesses and organisations to request travel documents for permitted activities. You can also use the register to seek an exemption to travel from the Director-General of Health if your business activity does not appear on the permitted activities list referred to above.

Register for business travel -

The Business Travel Register will generate Business Travel Documents for workers to display at checkpoints. This includes a QR code, which enables Police at the cordon to verify the document digitally against the travel register. It is important that you register your businesses for travel.

If you requested and received Business Travel Documents during Alert Level 3 in Auckland earlier in February, you can use those documents.
