A 'travel bubble' between New Zealand and Australia could be a model for the future

Travel Bubble' between New Zealand and Australia Could be a Model ...
It may be some time before tourists are travelling the globe again. But what if you could travel through designated, approved parts of it?
Politicians from Australia and New Zealand are discussing the possibility of opening up borders to each other, creating a travel corridor or "travel bubble" between the two nations.
Both countries almost completely shut their borders to foreigners in March, a huge blow to their respective tourism industries. But with both appearing to have successfully brought their coronavirus outbreaks under control, politicians are now talking about when borders could be opened to each other.
"If there is any country in the world with whom we can reconnect with first, undoubtedly that's New Zealand," Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said last month.
"That is a situation we would all like to be in, but of course, our number one focus at the moment is making sure that both our countries are in the position where we're domestically managing Covid-19 to a point where we can with confidence open borders," New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on April 27.
