Coronavris: Whereabouts of 17 NZ passengers in Melbourne still unknown, Daniel Andrews says

Premier Daniel Andrews has expressed frustration with the Australian Border Force, Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport and the federal government for a technicality which allowed 17 New Zealanders to enter Victoria despite the state's lockdown. "I've written to the prime minister this morning, given I had, the previous day or day before, written to the prime minister on this very issue," he said. "This is effectively possible because we have not closed our border ... that's exactly what the prime minister wants, we have done that and now we see 17 people turn up on our doorstep without any notice, without any structure, and we still can't even get the cards from Australian Border Force as to who they are and where they've gone." Mr Andrews said he wasn't sure why the state was still waiting for the Australian Border Force to provide his government with passenger cards for each of the 17 individuals, stating authorities would be visiting them to ensure they're up to date with state restrictions. "There are more people coming on Sunday from New Zealand and we don't want a repeat of this ... surely it's not beyond those who are responsible for the borders of our nation making sure only those in the NZ bubble can receive domestic passengers after they have arrived into an international airport," he said. "Someday, we will join that New Zealand- Australia travel bubble, but that's not appropriate now. "At a time when Victorians can't freely move around in their own state - for the best of public health reasons - it's unacceptable to me that people from another country, when I expressly said we don't want this to happen now, are able to get into Melbourne without us knowing. "No warning. It's exactly the opposite of what we signed up for. It's happened now, it can't be undone, but our focus is on getting those cards and getting to those people and having that conversation with them." Mr Andrews said until the passenger cards were made available by the border force, he could not confirm whether they were Victorian citizens or NZ nationals or where in the state they were. Under the one-way travel bubble agreement, New Zealand nationals may visit New South Wales and the Northern Territory but were able to board a domestic flight from Sydney to Melbourne given there are no hard borders in place between the two states. "We can be clear there are no international flights arriving into Melbourne, but what we can't be clear on - I think we are now but we couldn't last night - the notion of them being allowed to freely travel from Sydney," Mr Andrews said. "I'm confident we won't see more of this." Victoria recorded just one case overnight with zero deaths. New Zealand has just three cases in managed isolation.
