JUST IN: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has confirmed a travel bubble with Australia will be launched next year. A fixed date, expected to be sometime in the first quarter of 2021, will be announced once details are locked down by New Zealand authorities.
Speaking at her last post-cabinet press conference for this year, Prime Minister Ardern said Cabinet had agreed in principle to establish quarantine-free travel between the two countries.
The opening of the bubble will be contingent on Australia’s Cabinet signing it off, and the COVID-19 situation in both counties remaining as it is now.
MORE TO COME.
