A 'one-way' travel bubble has opened between Australia and NZ from 16-Oct. People from New Zealand can travel to Australia, however, they must pay for their own quarantine in a hotel upon returning to NZ. For the time being this is only one-sided. Australians are not allowed to enter New Zealand.
Easier travel from Australia to New Zealand could begin by December 2020, with the prospect of 'travel bubbles' to the likes of Singapore, Japan and South Korea under discussion for 2021 – although trips to the USA and Europe are probably off the cards until 2022.FCDO advice against all non-essential international travel.
All international travellers entering Australia need to undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at a designated facility (for example a hotel) at their port of arrival. This is arranged by individual State and Territory governments. States and Territories are introducing charges for quarantine.
