Tassie puts out the welcome mat


Tasmania's tourism-dependent businesses will welcome Monday's partial border reopening to covid-safe jurisdictions including New Zealand.

Arrivals from all states and territories barring NSW and Victoria are now allowed in without the need to quarantine.

Travellers will be temperature-checked and questioned on any symptoms.

Health Minister Sarah Courtney says the state's airports and TT Line have processes and systems in place in readiness for the reopening.

"Those who have symptoms will be requested to get a test and isolate until the results is known," she said. 

"They will also complete the Tas e-Travel registration system which has been live since Friday, allowing travellers to record where they are travelling to our island from. 

"Travellers from medium and high-risk areas will still be required to provide their details via the G2G PASS system."

Passengers on a Jetstar flight into Hobart from Brisbane on Monday morning will be among the first to benefit.
