Trans-Tasman Bubble Set To Open To Two-Way Quarantine-Free Travel from 11:59pm Sunday April 18
Posted on: 6 April 2021

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced New Zealand will open its borders to Australian travellers without the need to quarantine from 11:59pm Sunday April 18.

Ms Ardern said New Zealand would manage the travel bubble by effectively considering Australia another region, albeit a more complicated one. Outbreaks would see restrictions be reinstated on a state-by-state basis.

Flights between the two countries would operate with green lanes at international borders, to avoid contact with other international arrival/departure passengers.
