The Australia New Zealand Trans-Tasman bubble will start.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement following a meeting of NZ’s cabinet on Tuesday, April 6.
The NZ travel bubble will allow people to travel between the two countries without 14 days quarantine.
“Cabinet was presented with advice today that conditions for opening up quarantine-free travel with Australia had been met,” Ardern said.
“The Director-General of Health considers the risk of transmission of COVID-19 from Australia to New Zealand to now be low, and that quarantine-free travel would be safe to commence.”
