New Zealanders stuck in Australia will be able to return home next month
New Zealanders stuck in Australia will be able to return home next month when red flights resume from several cities in Australia.
Travelers will have to book their 14-day stay in managed isolation, have a negative pre-departure test, and the normal rules around paying for their stay will apply.
MIQ vouchers and flights will be available for travel on a limited number of dates in September from a select number of locations.
Those who need to urgently return to New Zealand are encouraged to see if they meet emergency allocation requirements through the MIQ website and apply as soon as possible.
Travellers will still need to have a pre-departure test and must pay for their stay in MIQ if they are not eligible for a fee waiver.
A timeline on when the MIQ vouchers will be released and the flights open for booking will be announced in the coming days.
