‘Out of our control’: WA Premier calls for federal support as 25 New Zealand travellers arrive in Perth

Premier Mark McGowan has called for better management of the trans-Tasman travel bubble after 25 travellers from New Zealand arrived unannounced at Perth Airport without exemptions, just two days after the arrangement that excludes WA was put in place.

The 24 adults have been placed in hotel quarantine in Perth while one child is with a family member “somewhere in Perth” which Mr McGowan said was a “quarantine arrangement” often made for young children rather than placing them in a hotel room for two weeks.

WA Premier Mark McGowan said the situation was not ideal.

It is unclear at this stage if the travellers are New Zealand citizens, dual citizens or Australian expats.

The one-way travel bubble agreement from New Zealand to New South Wales and the Northern Territory began on Friday.
