Share your COVID-19 experience with the Royal Commission of Inquiry

New Zealanders are invited to share their feedback about New Zealand’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and possible changes to the terms of reference for the Royal Commission of Inquiry into COVID-19 Lessons Learned. 

The Royal Commission wants to figure out what went well and what needs to improve in case of future pandemics. 

Every New Zealander’s experience was different, and all feedback will help New Zealand to prepare for the future. You can tell the Commission about your experiences of the pandemic, or on behalf of others, such as your family or whānau, or an organisation. 

Public submissions are open until Sunday 24 March 2024. You can learn more on the Royal Commission COVID-19 Lessons Learned website external URL

Share your feedback

You can share your feedback confidentially online at the Royal Commission website external URL in English, te reo Māori,  NZSL, Mandarin, Hindi, Tongan and Samoan.

If you want to share your feedback in a different format or have difficulties with the online form, contact InquiryintoCOVID-19lessons@dia.govt.nz  

Alternate formats

The Royal Commission has provided information in alternate formats about the work of the Inquiry and submissions process.
