LOOPHOLE > AU-NZ Travel Bubble – General travel news & discussion

Hi All

I had posted a few months ago re possible go around – loophole when plans were underway for Kiwi’s to enter Australia vv without quarantine… Now seems like a few articles are our regarding a possible loophole.

I have also included a few article quotes that I have found regarding a technical loophole. You can google search au nz travel loophole…

Initial Post >

Now that the NZ/AUS travel bubble has be established (slightly) and be it at a slow pace starting mid this month….

I wanted to know your thoughts on who would consider by passing govt restrictions and say travel to NZ to fly onwards to other countries that allow Australian residents to enter… example Singapore.

As of the moment you wouldn’t be able to travel to say Singapore (DIRECTLY) unless you had a travel exemption. However now that Australian’s may soon have the option to travel to NZ, wouldn’t people just fly to NZ and then get a connecting flight to SINGAPORE or any other country that Australians can fly into…

Loophole Article >

“A loophole in Aotearoa’s upcoming travel bubble with Australia could open the rest of the world up to Australians who are keen to travel further afield.

All Australians currently require special permission from federal border force authorities to leave the country, but that’s not the case in New Zealand where people are free to depart the country should they wish to.

This means that Australians could fly to New Zealand and then on to a third country without needing permission, according to reports in Australia on Friday afternoon.

A spokesperson for Australia’s Border Force confirmed to the Sydney Morning Herald that the bubble agreement would not be able to stop Australians from departing to other countries via New Zealand.

“Currently, New Zealand does not prevent Australian citizens leaving New Zealand and travelling onwards overseas;however, anyone arriving into Australia or New Zealand from any other country must enter into quarantine or mandatory isolation as directed by the relevant government departments and health authorities,” the spokesperson told the newspaper.

While the New Zealand Government advises against people travelling overseas, it doesn’t stop them from doing so. However, any globetrotting Aussie travellers who do exploit the loophole are likely to end up in isolation upon their return.”

Question > (this is not about a short holiday BUT)

Would you use this loophole if you were to spent months overseas of which was to visit friends or loved ones… It has been more then a year and a lot of people aren’t able to get exemptions…

Again not suggesting this for a short holiday. That would a crazy idea but I’m sure some people might do that…

I understand a lot of countries are closed, totally get that… However I do know Singapore is accepting AU/NZ citizens to enter if they have been in either country for more then 14 days… its just that AU govt doesn’t allow travel without exception.

Sorry for the long post… Interested in peoples thoughts. 🙂
