The one-way trans-Tasman travel bubble between New Zealand and Australia has resumed, with Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly saying cases in Auckland pose a “low risk” of spreading into Australia.
The travel bubble, in which travellers from New Zealand can arrive in Australia without quarantining, was suspended on February 15.
Australians still need an exemption to travel to New Zealand, and must complete 14 days’ quarantine on arrival.
Flights out of New Zealand were suspended following new community coronavirus cases emerging in Auckland.
“All passengers travelling from New Zealand on a green zone flight, who have been in Auckland for any period (with exception of the airport for travel) over the last 14-days, will be required to provide evidence at check-in of a negative PCR test conducted within 72 hours of the scheduled flight departure,” a statement from the federal Health Department said.
