    That is really great. I am wary of booking flights and accommodation and then having cases appear from hotel quarantine and then borders close again. Or is all that behind us?
    *The kicker being if we are talking about going to NZ to ski it is likely that all one's eggs would be in that basket as Oz would likely be booked out so switching may not be an option. I don't want to miss another season skiing.

    I'm saving leave up for a longer trip in January/February next year. Also the kids school holiday dates don't work ideally for the southern hemisphere season - so I'll be taking them out of school and I will limit that to one week.
    I'm saving leave up for a very hopeful Canada (back up would be Japan) trip in January/February 22.

    That kind of puts things in perspective.
    Those of us who have all our family local have been extremely lucky through all this. I can only imagine the discomfort having loved ones overseas would be.

    For New Zealander’s in Australia wanting to visit or return to Nz the wait time for a quarantine spot is now 3 months so hopefully this gets going quicker than March

    Me too re Canada!

    I’m working on 5 days skiing Enzed, saving a month of leave for Feb 2022.

    Oz will be weekends and occasional flex.

    Surely they could allow home quarantine for Aussies now!

    I thought the idea of the trans Tasman bubble was no quarantine? talk on the news last night of separate areas in the airport and air crew only doing bubble flights.

    I believe that's the current lead time for quarantine, say if a bubble does not eventuate. Via MIQ:
