And this is taken from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.To be fair to SA, QLD and WA, they all ask if the person has been overseas in the last 14 days as part of their border passes. I don't buy the headlines such as "snuck into Perth". It was reported they had G2G passes (otherwise they would have been sent back to Sydney).
This whole thing is ridiculous and I can't believe how much air time it's been getting.
Federal government should have just said Kiwis don't need to quarantine. End of. States don't get a vote.
Travelling to Victoria from New Zealand
A trans-Tasman travel bubble is currently in place between New Zealand and parts of Australia. This allows travellers from New Zealand to arrive in New South Wales and the Northern Territory without having to quarantine for 14 days on arrival.
Currently the Victorian borders are open. If you are travelling from New Zealand and have passed all relevant immigration and biosecurity requirements as established by the Federal Government, New South Wales Government and Northern Territory Government, then you are able to travel to Victoria. You do not need to quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Victoria.
If you have travelled from New Zealand and you have symptoms associated to coronavirus (COVID-19) you should not travel to Victoria. If you do you may be subject to detention under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 on your arrival.
You will be subject to the relevant health directions and restrictions in place during your stay in Victoria and may be subject to heavy penalties should you breach those.
Information and advice about travel overseas, entering Australia and self-quarantine.
So how can the Vic.Premier say they didn't know this could happen?
