​Quarantine free travel between WA and New Zealand

New Zealand is set to join WA’s safe and sensible controlled interstate border as a ‘very low risk’ jurisdiction from 12.01am, Monday, April 19, pending no further outbreaks. This means travellers from New Zealand will be able to enter WA without having to quarantine, subject to strict conditions. For more information on what we are doing to promote WA to the NZ market, visit International campaigns.
