COVID-19: Trans Tasman – NZ-AUS travel bubble suspended from midnight tonight

COVID-19: Trans Tasman – NZ-AUS travel bubble suspended from midnight tonight

With outbreaks of COVID-19 across the east coast of Australia, it is no surprise that New Zealand is suspending the travel bubble, which allows New Zealanders and Australians travel without quarantine between the two countries, from midnight on Friday 23 July.

The suspension will currently last for 8 weeks.

For New Zealanders there will be managed return flights over the next seven days for Kiwi citizens and residents to return home.

Different rules apply for which state of Australia you are returning from. If you are returning from NSW you will need a negative test, and will head into hotel quarantine in New Zealand. If you are returning from Victoria, then you need a negative pre-departure test and can quarantine at home back in NZ. Returnees from other states will still need to quarantine, but wont’ require a negative pre-departure test

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is encouraging Kiwi’s to return home within the next 7 days, otherwise they will need to find a ‘managed isolation spot’ just like any other traveller to New Zealand. Spots are not guaranteed.

I love digital, except when my phone dies, which happened to me on the last night of my recent visit to New Zealand
