New Zealand’s travel bubble breach: People are sneaking into Perth even though borders are closed | Instant News

More than two dozen New Zealanders have entered Perth even though the Western Australian border is tightly closed.

The 25 tourists are currently in hotel quarantine.

One of the 25 children is a child.

Prime Minister Mark McGowan reportedly said it was an area where the federal government should provide more support.

“We would prefer better management of this arrangement, but this is something that is happening beyond our control,” he said, according to A B C.

“We need further assistance from the Commonwealth, in particular, on ensuring that … we get the right statements and the right advice about the people who come, so that we can deal with this situation.”

A Federal Government spokesman said: “Upon arrival in Australia from New Zealand, passengers are advised to check other state entry requirements which include requiring hotel quarantine if they are traveling to WA.

“This is the exact same arrangement if a traveler from any Australian state goes to WA they will be asked to do a hotel quarantine.

“The travel bubble worked exactly as outlined at several expert medical panel meetings over the past two weeks in which the CHO from WA was present.

“As per the Sept. 18 National Cabinet decision, airlines must provide passenger records to state authorities if requested for contact tracing.”
