Travel between New Zealand and Australia

As a result of the current COVID-19 outbreaks in New Zealand and Australia, quarantine-free travel across the Tasman is currently suspended.

Travel from New Zealand to Australia

Air New Zealand was allocated a very limited number of managed isolation spaces to return customers home to Australia. The small number of flights that match this allocation went on sale at 10:00am (NZT), Monday, 20 September, and have, unfortunately, sold out.

If you do require assistance due to an extended stay in Aotearoa, we encourage you to reach out to your local consulate or embassy.

Travel from Australia to New Zealand

Flights from Australia to New Zealand to match the December allocation of MIQ rooms will be available to book online via our website on Tuesday, 28 September from 10:00am (NZT). Flights in September, October and November are available to book now.

What you need to know:

  • Our planned schedule for October and November is available here. Our schedule for December can be found here.
  • A space in MIQ must be booked via the NZ Government's Managed Isolation Allocation System. You will need a valid MIAS voucher to be accepted for travel. The cost for your stay in MIQ is not included with your booking.
