New Zealand is one of the countries with the best response to COVID-19. Upon entry of the virus on February 28, 2020, the New Zealand government immediately responded by implementing a precautionary approach, namely restrictions on international flights from countries that still do not have an adequate health system and have not taken any action to tackle the dangers of the spread on COVID-19. The response that was also taken by the New Zealand government was by continuously conducting campaigns about COVID-19 using securitization theory. Thus, this study aims to describe the securitization process of the New Zealand government in suppressing the number of COVID-19 which will be emphasized on the speech act of the securitizing actor, namely the government. This research uses the library research method to collect relevant data/ Data was also obtained from the New Zealand government's press conferences. The results showed that New Zealand has securitized prior the entry of COVID-19 into the country. Speech acts are carried out by conveying that COVID-19 is transmitting quickly and request that people trust the decisions made by the government. Approximately 83 percent of New Zealanders trust the government. For this reason, the government has the ability to act by implementing extraordinary measures.
