What is a Travel Bubble

Travel bubbles, also known as travel corridors or corona corridors, are essentially an exclusive partnership between two or more countries that have demonstrated considerable success in containing and combating the COVID-19 pandemic within their respective borders.

Connections

These countries then go on to re-establish connections between them by opening up borders and allowing people to travel freely within the zone without having the need to undergo on-arrival quarantine.

Two Way Street

At last, the Travel bubble Australia and New Zealand is now a two-way street with New Zealand opening their border for travellers from Australia on 19 April. Travellers from both countries are free to travel to both countries without involving quarantine.
