SYDNEY (BLOOMBERG) – The fledgling travel bubble between Australia and New Zeala nd hit an early snag after 17 passengers who flew into Sydney on Friday (Oct 16) broke the rules and caught a connecting flight to Melbourne.

In an effort to boost tourism, Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s government is encouraging visitors from New Zealand, which has crushed community transmission of Covid-19, and says they can enter the country without having to undergo hotel quarantine for 14 days.

But the quarantine-free travel corridor only covers New South Wales state, which is home to Sydney, and the Northern Territory.

The 17 passengers flew on to Melbourne within minutes of arriving in Sydney, and Victoria state Premier Daniel Andrews isn’t happy.

“We are not part of this bubble,” Andrews told reporters Saturday. “I have written to the prime minister this morning and we’re disappointed this has happened.” Authorities are waiting for border officials to forward the details of the passengers so they can be traced and informed of local lockdown rules

The limited travel corridor falls far short of the bubble initially envisaged by Morrison. New Zealand isn’t yet reciprocating, and says anyone returning from a trip to Australia must quarantine for 14 days on their return

Indeed, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has urged New Zealanders to holiday at home instead
