Ardern reveals two-way bubble details.
The long-awaited two-way trans-Tasman travel bubble will soon be a reality, with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announcing that Australians can book a holiday across the Tasman departing from 11:59pm 18 April.
“Cabinet has been advised that the risk of trans-Tasman travel is now considered low risk,” Arden announced.
However, the NZ PM cautioned that the bubble would go ahead under the premise of “flyer beware”, with travellers advised they may need to change plans if health conditions were to change quickly.
Most Australian states already allow Kiwis to enter the country, but until now any Aussies wishing to travel to New Zealand have been forced to undergo a mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine period at their own expense.
More details on this exciting development and all of the associated protocols will be in tomorrow’s edition of Travel Daily.
