NSW, Queensland and Victoria reinstate 14-day quarantine for New Zealand travellers

NSW, Queensland and Victoria reinstate 14-day quarantine for New Zealand travellers

New Zealand travellers flying to Australia's eastern states will have to quarantine for 14 days amid the recent Auckland Covid outbreak. 

NSW, Queensland and Victoria reinstate 14-day quarantine for New Zealand travellers

New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania have rolled back quarantine-free travel with New Zealand.

Auckland has been deemed a ‘hotspot’ by NSW, which means travellers who have been in the city must quarantine for 14 days when arriving into the state. Travellers from New Zealand who arrived in NSW since Saturday are being contacted by health authorities and being asked to get tested and isolate until given a negative result.

Similarily, Auckland has been deemed a ‘red zone’ by Victoria and anyone arriving into the state from Auckland must undergo mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine.

Queensland also requires travellers from New Zealand to quarantine. Those who arrived in Queensland since 6 February are being asked to get tested and isolate until they get a negative result.

Tasmania health authorities have also deemed Auckland a ‘high-risk’ zone and those who have been in the city for 14 days before arriving in Tasmania are not permitted to enter the state, unless they are essential travellers, in which case they made need to undergo quarantine upon arrival.

Flights out of Auckland have been cancelled or delayed since the new restrictions were announced. Last night, travellers on an Air New Zealand flight to Brisbane were told it was cancelled as they were boarding as the new restrictions came into effect.

There are currently 11 cases of Covid in the Auckland community, all linked to the same cluster.
