Employees of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, including the Australian Border Force, will take part in protected industrial action across Australian airports from 22 March 2016. As a result, departure and arrival processing at Australian airports may take longer than usual.
Air New Zealand recommends that customers flying out of Australia check in earlier than normal and allow additional time after check in to complete the border security process prior to departure.
For information on what airports and dates are likely to be affected by this please see the
Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection website
