Travel between Australia and New Zealand

Travel between Australia and New Zealand opens up.

The Australia-New Zealand travel bubble means travellers no longer need to quarantine on arrival.  This is welcome news after a long-awaited separation for many families across borders.  Under the new bubble’s rules, which started on 18 April 2021, all travellers must have spent 14 days before departure in either Australia or New Zealand to be exempt from quarantine.
