Australian Government has classified all flights originating in New Zealand as Red Zone flights.

It means anyone flying from New Zealand to Australia will now need to undergo 14 days in hotel quarantine.

In a statement, The Chief Medical Officer and the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee said they will monitor the situation in New Zealand and provide revised guidance as further information becomes available.

A review of the travel arrangements will be undertaken on Friday 20 August.

All passengers on flights originating in New Zealand up until 11.59pm (AEST) on 23 August 2021 will need to go into 14 days of supervised hotel quarantine on arrival in Australia and adhere to the requirements of the State and Territory in which they enter.
