Green Zone Travel Arrangements With New Zealand Suspended For Minimum Of 72 Hours
Posted on: 25 January 2021
The Australian Federal Government announced on Monday January 25 that after New Zealand recorded its first Covid-19 case from community transmission, the green zone between Australia and New Zealand would be suspended for a minimum of 72 hours.
Health Minister Greg Hunt announced that all passengers from New Zealand with a safe zone flight scheduled in the next 72 hours should reconsider their need to travel. Any travellers arriving on a safe zone flight from Monday January 25 would need to go into hotel quarantine, or whatever the arrival state implements, for up to 14 days, but for a minimum of 72 hours, and to have a test. 
He also advised that anyone who has arrived in Australia on a flight from New Zealand on or since January 14 is asked to isolate and arrange to be tested and to remain in isolation until they receive a negative test result.
