joker97: this must be the oddest thread in the entire geekzone history! :)


Haha I doubt that, I've seen some very strange threads on here in the past year

This is one example of the "domestic flight" noise I referred to before.

Or the link I posted, and the Australians were opposed to the idea.

freitasm: I am reading these answers and I still can't understand what you guys are on about.

The OP clearly noted "apparently from December 1st you will no longer need a passport"... And most of the replies are about the current situation - not the one in the future.

There is some noise around this topic and I remember reading that both governments are working towards changing the status of flights between our two countries to "domestic".

AFAIK nothing was decided, no date set, and certainly doesn't change requirements for living and working.



Something was decided, they're going to introduce smart gates at the major NZ airports and scan baggage as you leave a NZ/AU airport and send it over to your arrival airport in the other country so that you don't have to get inspected twice (only "high risk" passengers will get searched again). There were rumours that they were going do turn flights between AU and NZ into domestic style flights (which I think the OP might be talking about), but that was just rumour.

That's right, I completely forgot about that. I did read about it months ago, and making it easier for Kiwi's to go over there and avoid customs and immigration.

You would probably need a legal form of ID, which I believe is realistically only a Passport, as LTNZ have said that drivers licences are not a valid form of ID.

Now that I was reminded about the whole combined NZ-Aus border thing google managed to turn up a few results, still havent found anything official yet
