Trans-Tasman travel bubble to resume with some states

Quarantine-free travel from some Australian states to New Zealand will resume at 11.59pm on 4 July.

The New Zealand Government announced on Tuesday that the bubble will reopen with South Australia, ACT, Tasmania and Victoria.

The health advice today is that at this point, the spread of COVID-19 in those parts of Australia appears to have been contained,” COVID-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said.

However, evidence of a negative pre-departure test will be required before travellers are able to fly to New Zealand, and travellers must not have been in Queensland, the NT and WA on or after 10:30pm (NZT) on 26 June 2021. They must also not have been in NSW on or after 11:59pm (NZT) on 22 June.

The pause on quarantine-free travel with the remaining states and territories will be reviewed on 6 July.

“As we said on Saturday when we announced the pause, we needed a few days to get a better understanding of the developing situation and the growing number of COVID-19 cases being reported across Australia,” Hipkins said.

“A risk assessment has been completed for each state and territory. New South Wales is currently seen as the most risk; Queensland, Western Australia and Northern Territory are higher risk than we are comfortable with; and South Australia, ACT, Tasmania and Victoria are consistent with our green flights category.”
