Returnees from Australia

Quarantine Free Travel with Australia remains suspended. Eligible travellers needing to return to New Zealand from all Australian states (except New South Wales) were provided a 7-day window which ended at 11.59pm on Friday 30 July.

As a result of Queensland’s decision over the weekend to enter a three-day lockdown in parts of the state, we’re contacting all travellers who’ve returned since last Monday, asking them to check locations of interest on the Queensland Health website and monitor for any symptoms of COVID-19.
