I had this career break planned for sometime and I wanted to do a month backpacking and hiking around NZ in Jan. From media reports sounds like they may be strict on allowing foreign visitors for sometime.
You could get 100 different guesses, but in reality no one knows at the moment.

No one knows, at least no one on here. Sit tight and see what happens, NZ isn't going anywhere.

I don't think my UK tour this time in 2021 will happen, I was just about to pay a deposit but held off when Covid started escalating.

Apart from the Trans Tasman bubble to see my daughter, I'm going to enjoy discovering a bit of NZ in 2021, I've never been to the North Island and apart from the Transalpine train in 2012, I've not been around the South Island since 1997, so 2021 is going to be my NZ adventure discovery roadtrip...

I tnink international travel is going to be quite some time away...

For the last couple of years we have taken a cruise from the US/Canada to NZ. Last year we only had 3 days in NZ, but made the most of it driving around the North Island. We were looking forward to taking a similar cruise Sept/Oct time this year and spending more time touring round. Sadly it is not to be...maybe next year, or the year after.

I'm in a travel group on Facebook and there are a few cruisers anxiously waiting to see what happens with their 2021 cruises.

I was going to do a solo tour of some places I haven't been such as Scotland (I haven't been to the Northern hemisphere since I was a 20 something backpacker in the early 90's) but even if we can travel internationally in 2021 I'm a bit nervous to do it on my own now.

There's plenty of Nz for me to see..

I hope you get to do your travels at some stage Jerseygirl 😊

Seems we took one step forward and three steps back; I imagine based on this news we will have regressed to insane queues of people at the supermarket topping up with an extra trolley load of toilet paper, pasta and hand sanitiser again today.

It'll be interesting to see what the screening is like for the travel bubble. I suppose they can collect the samples at the airport and run the PCR on site as the aircraft is in-flight? Either way we will need to confront the fact that Australia has a minimisation rather than elimination strategy.

Who knows, I am a bit cynical about the Trans tasman bubble and how they will go about it, especially since Australia is fighting between themselves over borders and Victoria's cases are increasing.

I'm fine either way as I'm heading back early August after the triple birthdays of myself, my two girls and completion of my work experience, as I'm a resident I get to go back, if the bubble isn't open it's mandatory isolation but I'm fine with that, I self isolated when I arrived in Oz months ago just before borders shut.

still peeves me to no end people like that though....

On the bright side - I expect that the clamor of people demanding to be treated as exceptions had become deafening so this gives the government the opportunity to draw a line under that and say 'no' to them all from now on.

Someone dropped a clanger with this didn't they & someone female who travelled from the UK obviously wasn't quite up front .

The UK is not a Covid19 safe country so perhaps all people looking to leave that place and travel should be tested there first . Then tested on arrival plus the compulsory quarantine & tested again. No exceptions.

Sorry for these ladies loss but many more have gone through the same and worse. I gather that 2 teenagers were also a part of this mess up.

Just goes to show that for anyone that thought the measures are too tough, they are not. However I also wonder how opening of borders is going to properly work.
