Five New Zealanders enter South Australia from interstate

Five New Zealanders enter South Australia from interstate”

The Victorian government website said Monday morning that the "Trans-Tasmin (sic) travel bubble" allowed New Zealand travelers to arrive in New South Wales and the Northern Territory without being quarantined for 14 days upon arrival to have to.

All of the travellers are now in hotel quarantine, South Australian Premier Steven Marshall told reporters at a press conference today.

There was widespread confusion on Sunday as Premier Daniel Andrews revealed previous estimates of 17 New Zealanders arriving in Victoria had jumped to 55 as state and federal leaders accused each other of responsibility for the bungle.

"They were basically met with the normal arrangements at the Adelaide Airport, our systems have worked and they are now in quarantine".

The Australian state of Victoria reported four new Covid-19 cases on Monday (Oct 19) as people in Melbourne were granted more freedom to move about after a months-long lockdown, buoying hopes an outbreak in the city was nearing an end.

"If you are traveling from New Zealand and have passed all relevant immigration and biosecurity requirements as established. then you are able to travel to Victoria".

After days of protest, the Victorian government today acknowledged that New Zealanders were free to Victoria from other states and did not need to quarantine upon arrival.

Air New Zealand and Jetstar will also be joined by Qantas in providing flights between Auckland and Sydney.

Andrews earlier threatened to close his state's borders unless federal authorities stopped passengers from New Zealand who entered the country via the bubble from boarding planes for Melbourne.

"I'm not going to be quarantining people that came from a low virus community, and we just have to make the best of this".

Yesterday, Andrews said officials had "absolutely no power" to detain the travellers from New Zealand. "None of us can change that", Mr Andrews said as he lashed the federal government.

"Currently the Victorian borders are open", the Department of Health and Human Services said.

"It beggars belief that once again, the Federal Government seeks to avoid responsibility in this manner".

Australians are now unable to travel to New Zealand under the same conditions. If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, stay home and arrange a test by calling your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.
