After more than two years, New Zealand is reopening its borders
Daily Mail Australia shared that international travel is slowly gaining traction once again, but Australians are now more cautious of the destination they are going to.
A survey revealed that a country’s COVID record is now a key factor in whether a country is safe to fly to or not.
Data gathered from more than 1,000 Australians found that 92 percent of them are planning to travel abroad within the next two years. Eighty-nine percent of them, however, emphasised how a country’s way of handling the COVID pandemic will influence their decision to travel there.
Fiji is a prime example, as fully vaccinated travellers can visit the country without prior approval and must show a negative rapid antigen test from the previous day. Masks and social distancing restrictions have also been lifted.
Because of its isolation, proximity to Australia, and low COVID cases during the pandemic, the country will likely become a popular tourist destination.
After more than two years, New Zealand is reopening its borders, BusinessLIVE reported. Tourism businesses are rehiring guides, cleaning up souvenir shops, and preparing to welcome back overseas visitors who must show proof of vaccination and pass a pre-departure test.
Before the pandemic, hordes of tourists packed New Zealand’s popular destinations, even filling infrastructure to breaking point. The government wants to shift away from that. It is considering charging foreign visitors to visit certain places and attracting more high-spending guests who will stay longer and pay for unique experiences.
Since 12 April 2022, Australians have been able to enter New Zealand without being quarantined, increasing two-way travel between the two countries. According to CAPA – Centre for Aviation, returning New Zealanders have been exempted from quarantine and isolation since March 2022, and Australia has been allowing them to enter since November 2021.
Other countries that Australians consider travelling to include Brazil, China, India, Italy, and the United Arab Emirates.
