Travel between New Zealand and Australia

Additional travel restrictions

Effective immediately, all customers arriving in Sydney or Melbourne are required to proceed directly to their place of residence or accommodation, self-isolate for 72 hours, and await further health advice.

No onward travel will be permitted for those wishing to travel domestically beyond Sydney or Melbourne.

These restrictions will remain in place until more is known about the severity and transmissibility of the new COVID-19 Omicron variant.

There are also additional restrictions in place for those who have recent travel history in some African countries. Please visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs website and the Unite Against COVID-19 website for more information.
