Don’t believe the spin from the Government’s big 1 pm announcement on MIQ today – all they’ve done is said that from 17 January, 2022, Kiwis in Australia can travel to New Zealand.

That’s it. No travel before Christmas — and to make matters worse, you’ll have to self-isolate at home for a week when you arrive.

Incredibly, it looks like Australians will have to wait until 30 April next year before they can come to New Zealand without going into MIQ! That’s a whole five months away.

Yesterday, I revealed that the number of fully vaccinated travellers from Australia to New Zealand in the last three months who have tested positive for covid-19 in New Zealand is… ZERO. You can watch it here.

That’s right. Zero. Not a single fully-vaccinated person from Australia has tested positive in New Zealand since 23 August.

So why isn’t the Trans-Tasman Bubble open right now? In fact, why don’t we end MIQ for all travellers to New Zealand, right now?

The government is under massive pressure on this issue as today’s (pathetic) announcement demonstrates. That’s thanks to people like you who have signed our petition. The more people that sign, the better – could you send it on and share it online?

In terms of Kiwis in other countries – you have to wait until 14 February and then do a week’s self-isolation when returning home.

Other travellers to New Zealand have to wait until 30 April next year.

Sadly, Fortress New Zealand continues. It’s time to re-open to the world and end MIQ. Thanks for your support so far. Our campaign is working, but we need to keep the pressure on.
