Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does anyone know if you have to be an Australian citizen to travel to New Zealand via the new travel bubble or is it open to all passport holders please?

Thanks

Travelling from Australia to New Zealand

People who have been in Australia for 14 days prior to departure are able to travel to New Zealand without applying for an outwards travel exemption.

Note: This provision is only applicable when New Zealand is the destination of travel. If you are transiting through New Zealand to another destination you must apply for an outward travel exemption.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

I think all nationalities can travel, here is what Timatic says for a UK passport:

Journey status : Conditional to board.
Based on information last updated on Apr 08 2021 12:00 am GMT

Auckland International Airport| April 19, 2021
New Zealand
Please check the messages below to see if travel is permitted.
  • Visa is not required for New Zealand. Maximum stay of 6 months.
  • Passengers must obtain an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) prior to travel. An ETA is valid for 2 years and can be used for multiple entries.

    This does not apply to passengers who hold a valid visa issued by New Zealand.

  • Passengers not holding onward/return tickets or other acceptable evidence of onward/return travel may be refused entry.
Additional Information
  •  
COVID-19 TRAVEL ALERTS

This includes holders of temporary entry visas and visa-waiver passengers, and passengers who have been issued a residence visa offshore and have not yet travelled to New Zealand on this visa, unless they have previously held a residence visa.

    This does not apply to:

    5. passengers with approval issued by Immigration New Zealand.
  • Passengers travelling to New Zealand are required to register for a Managed Isolation Allocation Voucher prior to departure at https://allocation.miq.govt.nz/portal/, due to the outbreak of Covid-19.

    Passengers must quarantine for 14 days on arrival in New Zealand and will be tested for Covid-19 at least 3 times, within 24 hours of arrival, on day 3 and on day 12.

    This does not apply to passengers arriving directly from Australia, the Cook Islands, or Niue who have not been outside of Australia, the Cook Islands, Niue, or New Zealand in the past 14 days.
