If you’re travelling to Australia on a quarantine-free flight after leaving managed isolation in New Zealand, you will not be eligible to arrive in Australia the same day you leave managed isolation in New Zealand. This is due to the criteria set by Australian authorities. We recommend making your travel arrangements for the day after you leave managed isolation.
If you are returning from an Australian state where travel has been paused, you may be required to go into managed isolation when you arrive in New Zealand. In most instances, you will be required to pay for your stay in managed isolation.
If you have travelled to New Zealand on a green flight, and during your time in New Zealand you are required to go into managed isolation and quarantine because you are a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case or have tested positive, you will be considered a domestic community case and will not be required to pay for your stay in managed isolation and quarantine.
