As well as today being the big day for the #ArrivalRevival of international travel into selected states, it’s also the beginning of one-way quarantine-free travel from New Zealand to Australia.

Quarantine-free travel from New Zealand to Australia has restarted today, in a surprising announcement which Tourism Minister Dan Tehan says is another important marker on the road to recovery.

He said it will be a major boost for tourism and confidence.

“Tourism Australia will look to scale up its marketing activities in New Zealand, with an immediate focus on building confidence and broadening knowledge of the depth of Australia’s tourism offering,” Mr Tehan said in a statement on Sunday.

“It will encourage more Australians to dust off their passport and plan their next holiday.”

He said in 2019, NZ was the second-largest source of visitors to Australia at 1.4 million visitors, spending $1.6 billion.

All travellers are must show proof of a negative pre-departure COVID-19 test within 3 days of the departure flight to Australia, complete a declaration to this effect, and show evidence of full vaccination against COVID-19 with an approved or recognised vaccine.

Upon return to New Zealand, passengers will have to check the New Zealand Government website for the latest travel advice and book a 14-night stay in MIQ.
