Australia to open borders to New Zealand in limited travel bubble

The Australian government has announced that it will open its borders to travellers from New Zealand within weeks.

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack announced on Friday that quarantine-free travel between New Zealand and Australia’s New South Wales and the Northern Territory (NT) would resume from Oct. 16 in a major boost for the tourism industry.

“This will allow New Zealanders and other residents in New Zealand who have not been in an area designated as a COVID-19 hotspot in New Zealand in the preceding 14 days to travel quarantine-free to Australia,” he told reporters.

However, he said that there was no timeline for when Australians would be able to enter New Zealand.
