Travelling to Australia

7 May 2021


You can now travel to and from most states in Australia without having to enter a managed isolation facility when you arrive.

While it’s mostly business as usual at Wellington Airport, there are some differences you need to be aware of. The main one is you will need to complete an online Australian Travel Declaration at least 72 hours before you fly to Australia from New Zealand. Each state and territory may also have their own restrictions and requirements.

The below links provide all the information you need to know before you travel, while at the airport and after you arrive at your destination:

  • As before, anyone who has arrived in New Zealand and who was at a location of interest at the specified time must self-isolate immediately and call Healthline for information on when they should be tested.
