When New Zealand is open for travel (again!) – What you need to know

Quarantine-free travel between Australia and New Zealand has commenced from 19 April 2021.  Australians and New Zealanders are now able to travel freely in each other’s country.  Travellers do not need to be vaccinated against COVID19 before travelling, but will not be permitted to fly if they are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms.  Masks need to be worn on the Trans-Tasman flight and passengers will be temperature-checked on arrival in either destination.  Travellers arriving in Australia or New Zealand will enter the country through a “green zone” in the airports and will be kept separate from other people flying in from other parts of the world.  Travellers in both destinations will be required to download a COVID tracing app to ensure they can be contacted quickly if any local cases are detected during their travels.

Please contact Benalla Travel for official updates and information regarding travel conditions under the Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble agreement and for special consideration international travel.

All the latest information on COVID-19 travel restrictions can be found at Smartraveller  , the New Zealand Government official website   and the Australian Government official website

Office Hours – Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm.  Please call to make an appointment and follow our COVIDSafe workplace measures.
