Australia/NZ border movement trials (con't)
“The New Zealand and
Australian governments share the
view that travelling across the
ditch should be as much like a
domestic experience as possible,”
said NZ Customs Minister,
The trial will involve the
integration of each country’s
SmartGate systems, allowing
some passengers to complete part of the
Australian arrivals process before
departing from New Zealand.
Running until Jul 2012, the trial
will initially cover Australian and
NZ ePassport holders aged over
18 who are flying from Auckland
to the Gold Coast. Those who pass through the
SmartGate in Auckland do not
need to complete the same
formalities upon arrival in Qld.
It's planned the scheme will be expanded across a number of cities once the trial has been proven successful, and once SmartGates are installed across other areas of the 2 networks.
