The WA Government today announced plans to allow for safe and quarantine-free travel between Western Australia and New Zealand.

New Zealand is set to join WA’s safe and sensible controlled interstate border as a ‘very low risk’ jurisdiction from 12.01am, Monday 19 April, pending no further outbreaks.

This means travellers from New Zealand will be able to enter WA without having to quarantine, subject to strict conditions.

To prohibit border hopping from other countries outside of Australia and New Zealand, currently arrivals, outside of Australia, entering New Zealand must also complete 14 days of quarantine similar to arrangements in place for international arrivals into Australia.

Travellers entering WA from ‘very low risk’ jurisdictions must:

  • Complete a mandatory G2G PASS (external link) registration and declaration prior to travel
  • On arrival at Perth Airport, complete a health screening.
  • Scan your G2G PASS to exit the airport.
