This Is Good News From Australia And New Zealand!

 The negative start for Aussie dollar and kiwi trading turned positive after the greenback dollar returned to decline.


This was also supported by good developments between Australia and New Zealand which reopened their national borders for free travel by both sides after more than a year it was closed.


Australia and New Zealand have closed their borders to non-citizens and permanent residents in the past year to prevent a wider spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.



With strict border restrictions, both countries have managed to curb the spread of the epidemic and keep infection rates at low levels.


Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and New Zealand PM Jacinda Arden in a joint statement said that, open borders will help drive economic recovery for both countries and unite thousands of families and friends who have been separated.


According to official data, about 1.5 million Australians who visited New Zealand in 2019, the year before the pandemic closed international borders, had spent $ 1.93 billion in the country.


However, Morrison and Arden also warned tourists to be prepared if faced with disruption of travel arrangements in the short term in the event of a Covid-19 case detected, and said the risk of traveling without quarantine would continue to be monitored.
