Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Simon Birmingham told Nine’s Today Show this morning that he hoped Australians would be able to travel freely and safely to New Zealand by the end of the year.

“We’re working hard to make sure every safety precaution and measure is in place through our airports, our border protections, screening processes, to make sure people can travel safely between Australia and New Zealand without risk of encountering other air travellers that may be coming in from higher risk countries,” Mr Birmingham said.

New Zealanders would not have to quarantine when arriving in Australia, but travel would only be permitted for residents of the south island, as the north island has a small cluster emerging.
