Travel bubble pause with Victoria to be lifted

The travel bubble pause between New Zealand and Victoria will be lifted on Tuesday night. 

The Ministry of Health says quarantine-free travel between New Zealand and the Australian state resumes at 11:59pm on Tuesday. 

“Travellers will no longer be required to have a pre-departure test,” the ministry said.

“However, all travellers are encouraged to continue monitoring for symptoms and checking the Victorian Health website for any updated locations of interest.”

The Ministry of Health says anyone in New Zealand who has been at any of the current locations of interest or newly identified locations of interest in Victoria, New South Wales or Queensland in the last 14 days at the specified times should continue to self-isolate and contact Healthline for advice on testing.

People in Australia who were at any of the locations of interest in Victoria, New South Wales or Queensland at the specified times are asked to “follow the health advice in the relevant state regarding isolation and testing. 

“They MUST not travel to New Zealand within 14 days of exposure”.

“Victorian health officials have determined there is unlikely to be widespread community transmission. They continue to carry out about 15,000 tests a day and there has been no unexplained COVID-19 detected in wastewater samples.”
