The Ministry of Health has confirmed that use of the NZ COVID Tracer app won’t be compulsory for travellers from Australia once the travel bubble starts on April 19, Newshub reports. The Ministry also added that people who are unable to use the NZ COVID Tracer app will be able to pick up a tracing booklet they can manually fill out at the airport. Meanwhile, the ACT Party has called for scanning QR codes and having “easy” contact tracing, to be made a requirement in the country, and leader David Seymour said it “absolutely” should be extended to visitors from Australia.
