Quarantine-free travel from all Australian states and territories is suspended from 24 July 2021.
Return green flights from Australia to New Zealand have ended. If you're currently anywhere in Australia (except for in NSW), you will not be able to travel back to New Zealand until red flights start.
This means you will need a book a spot in managed isolation or quarantine (MIQ).
We'll update this page when red flights become available.
The suspension will continue for at least 8 weeks and will be reviewed in September.
If you could not travel back to New Zealand before 30 July
If you're currently in Australia and were not able to return home before 30 July, we encourage you to:
Emergency consular help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Travelling to Australia from New Zealand
If you normally live in Australia and are currently in New Zealand
If you normally live in Australia and you're currently in New Zealand, you can travel home to Australia without having to quarantine on arrival.
Your options for travel from New Zealand may be limited as airlines reduce the number of flights available.
We recommend you contact your airline to confirm your booking.
If you normally live in New Zealand and want to travel to Australia
The New Zealand Government has upgraded its travel advice for everyone in New Zealand to “do not travel to Australia”, unless you usually live in Australia and you are returning home.
If you need to travel to Australia, check the requirements you must meet with the Australian Government. If you want to return you must be eligible to enter New Zealand, and you will have to book a space in MIQ. Currently, there are no spaces in MIQ available.
