While australia is expecting at least 200 new zealand travellers this weekend, prime minister morrison (Scott Morrison) reiterated that australians still restrict travel abroad in the "foreseeable future" and declined to disclose the dates on which travel circles (Travel bubble) were built and operated with other "safe" countries.

Since March 17, Australians have been banned from leaving Australia unless they go abroad for more than three months or receive travel exemptions. The travel ban on the new crown pandemic will expire on december 17th and may be extended.

Most countries, such as the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand, currently do not recommend international travel, but do not prevent nationals from leaving the country.

"For CA foreseeable future, the exit of Australians will remain restricted ," Morrison said in a radio interview today. "

He added that this means that as long as the state is open, there will be "great opportunities" for domestic tourism, as Australians will have to take vacations at home.

But in addition to New Zealand, Australia is also studying travel-circle schemes with some "low-risk" countries, allowing Australians to travel to these countries for holidays and returning to Australia without segregation, Morrison said.

The Prime Minister said he was holding "preliminary" consultations with Japan and South Korea, but declined to say when the agreement was reached. "I can't tell you directly, because I do n' t want ily to have higher expectations ".

The first phase of the New Zealand-Australia travel circle will be launched next Friday. At that time, New Zealand nationals who have not been to the hot spots of the new crown epidemic 14 days before their departure will be allowed to enter Australia without isolation. By air they could land in Sydney and Darwin, as the new state and the Northern Territory leader had approved the release.

Australian Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack McCormack also said earlier this month that South Australia is expected to become the next state open to New Zealanders.

But in view of this one-way travel circle, New Zealanders will still have to pay 2050 yuan for 14 days of mandatory hotel isolation after returning from Australia.

Australian passengers are still unable to travel to New Zealand. New Zealand Prime Minister Adrian (Jacinda Ardern) is currently pursuing a "eradication" Coronavirus strategy.

The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade continues to remind nationals of the need to travel to Australia. "Our travel advice remains that New Zealanders should not travel abroad. The launch of the travel circle will not naturally lead to the adjustment of travel recommendations. "

A federal budget document issued earlier this month also predicted that Australians would not be able to get a new crown by 2021 vaccine. and that travel abroad would remain "low ".


New Zealand's first flight to Australia is expected to carry 200 passengers

Sydney airport chief executive carlbert (Geoff Culbert) at the australian financial review national infrastructure summit (AFR National Infrastructure Summit) forecast a large influx this weekend.

"We expect the first flight from New Zealand to carry 200 passengers. "We haven't been welcoming such international visitors to Sydney for months ," Calbert said. They do not need to pass the customs, do not need to take a bus directly to the hotel (isolation). "

He acknowledged the limitations of the Trans-Tasman Travel Circle (trans-Tasman travel bubble), but stressed that this was a first step towards a "phased approach" that would provide a critical "proof of concept" for more destinations and travel activities ".

Calbert predicted that the next "quarantine-free" entry would include Singapore, South Korea and Japan. "These areas (during the pandemic) performed well and we have confidence in their health systems. "
