two way travel bubble between australia and new zealand announced

Australians will be able to fly across the ditch to New Zealand without quarantining under a two-way travel bubble that will begin in a fortnight.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Tuesday announced details of the long-awaited trans-Tasman arrangement.

Australians will have access to quarantine-free travel to New Zealand from 9.59pm AEST on Sunday, April 18.

“While quarantine-free travel to Australia and vice-versa will start in a fortnight, it will not be what it was pre-COVID,” Ms Ardern said.

“People will need to plan for the possibility of travel being disrupted if there is an outbreak.”

Under the travel arrangements, passengers travelling from Australia to New Zealand will be able to book onto a “green zone flight” which means:

• There will be no passengers on flights who have come from anywhere but Australia in the past 14 days

• Crew will not have flown to any high-risk routes for a set period of time

• Passengers will need to provide comprehensive information on how they can be contacted while in New Zealand

• They won’t be able to travel if they have cold or flu symptoms

• When they fly, they will be required to wear a mask on a flight

• Passengers will also be asked to download and use the NZ COVID Tracer app while in New Zealand

• On arrival, passengers will be taken through “green zone” lanes, which mean they will have no contact with other international passengers going into isolation or quarantine facilities

• Random temperature checks will also be conducted on arriving passengers…
