Queensland allowed to re-join New Zealand travel bubble

Good news for Gold Coasters looking to get across the ditch this winter, with New Zealand allowing Queensland to re-join the travel bubble.

It comes after Queensland marked a week of no new community transmission cases yesterday, essentially declaring that we’d stamped out a potential coronavirus outbreak.

The New Zealand government then confirmed that Queenslanders will be able to travel over the Tasman Sea, without having to quarantine for two weeks on arrival.


There are just a couple of requirements in order for people to get in. Queenslanders will be required to have a negative Covid test before travelling, and fill out a declaration form.

New Zealand is still not allowing anyone from New South Wales to cross the ditch for now, due to the worsening outbreak in Sydney.

Anyone who was at a ‘location of interest’ while in Australia is not able to come to New Zealand within 14 days of when they were at the site.
