Border Executive Board

The Border Executive Board was established as part of New Zealand’s defence against COVID-19 and other risks. It is intended to help co-ordinate the management of New Zealand’s borders, for example by assisting the relevant departments to:

  • remove gaps in border processes,
  • ensure that future risks from people, goods, and craft arriving at the borders are addressed, and
  • make strategic improvements to border systems.
