In a statement the Ministry of Health said one of the imported cases was a man in his 20s who arrived from the Philippines on 3 September and was at a managed isolation facility when he tested positive on day 3 of his stay.
The other is a female in her late teens who arrived on the same flight from the Philippines and also tested positive on day 3, it said.
The four new cases in the community were all linked to the Mt Roskill Evangelical Fellowship Church group within the Auckland August cluster. The Ministry said the Auckland Regional Public Health is actively tracing and testing their contacts.
