The much-predicted travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand looks set to go ahead, with South Australia among the first states in the bubble.

The change will mean that those flying into South Australia from New Zealand will be permitted to do so without a mandatory self-isolation period

However, there is a catch for would-be holiday-makers.

People arriving in New Zealand from South Australia will still be subject to hotel quarantine upon their arrival.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that South Australia and New South Wales would be the first states to allow Kiwis in.

The PM pointed to the two states’ approach to interstate border restrictions as one of the reasons for his support.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern flagged the potential travel bubble earlier this week, saying that she could see travel kicking off again between the two nations before Christmas.
