Victoria has recorded zero new local Covid infections on Tuesday as tourists from the state are welcomed back into New Zealand from tomorrow after the easing of government restrictions.

Jacinda Ardern's government halted the trans-Tasman bubble last month in response to Melbourne's latest Covid-19 outbreak.

With new community case numbers slowing to a trickle, the Ministry of Health has given the green light for travel to resume.

The Health Ministry's statement says it is encouraged by a lack of new Delta variant cases, large testing numbers and wastewater sampling.

No new cases but more positives may emerge: Foley. One new overseas-acquired case was recorded in hotel quarantine. Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley said "we may well see" more positive cases , as thousands of close contacts are still in quarantine. "We shouldn't rule that out," he said. Mr Foley said he would expect restrictions to lift further next Friday "on current trends". Victoria 's COVID testing commander Jeroen Weimar said testing close contacts who had been at exposure sites was ongoing, but all results in recent days had come back negative.

New Zealand's move is perhaps surprising, given its ultra-cautious approach to first removing the quarantine requirement from trans-Tasman travellers.

New South Wales first scrapped quarantine for Kiwis in October last year.

It was not until six months later, in April this year, that New Zealand reciprocated.

In allowing regular travel, it is re-opening to Victoria ahead of all Australian states except for New South Wales.

Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and Queensland all have varying degrees of restriction on Victorians heading across their borders.

Some restrictions still apply for would-be trans-Tasman travellers.

People who have visited a location of interest - where a potentially infected person has also travelled - in any state must not travel to New Zealand within 14 days of visiting that site.

The move means the trans-Tasman bubble is fully operational for the first time since May 25.
