  Information
Entry into New Zealand and the Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble

Currently, the New Zealand border is closed to most travellers by air/sea. There are a small amount of exempt travellers who are permitted to enter New Zealand, but require approval. To find out more, visit here. For the application form, visit here.

A Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble is currently being worked through for early 2021, which aims to enable travel between Australia/New Zealand in both directions without self-isolation.

The first stage enables those entering Australia from New Zealand to be permitted entry without self-isolation - except for Western Australia which still requires self-isolation. However, upon return to New Zealand you must still self-isolate. This bubble is currently one-way, it does not apply to Australians entering New Zealand.

International Travel Restrictions

 IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR TRAVELLERS:

Please visit here for more information about international border restrictions and entry requirements as they differ for each country. We recommend that you read these carefully before booking your travel.

Some airlines and destinations may require travellers to prove a negative COVID-19 test prior to travelling and/or medical forms, arrival forms and other entry processes. These may be required to be completed before you arrive at the airport – sometimes 24-72 hours prior. You may be required to pay a small fee for a COVID-19 test upon arrival in a destination. You may also be required to get a COVID-19 test at your destination abroad prior to flying home or during transit/stopovers. We strongly advise researching your airline and destination’s entry and travel requirements on the airline’s website as this is the most accurate and up to date source.
