Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were given special treatment upon their arrival in Australia from the U.S. on Monday morning (7/20).

According to the Daily Mail, the couple, who flew from Tennessee to Sydney via private jet, were granted permission by the New South Wales Government to self-isolate at home instead of staying at a quarantine hotel for two weeks.

Most travelers must stay in state-approved hotels, but the couple were allowed to head straight to their mansion in the Southern Highlands. Despite being granted this exception, the pair must still spend 14 days at home in accordance with Australia’s coronavirus rules.

The Urban’s arrival in Australia comes after Nicole was given the green light to film her new TV series, “Nine Perfect Strangers,” in Australia which will reportedly inject $100 million into the struggling local film industry by creating hundreds of jobs. Kidman will also star in the show with Melissa McCarthy, Luke Evans and Manny Jacinto.

Cast and crew members flying from overseas or interstate will be made to quarantine in a hotel for 14 days upon their arrival in NSW.

Filming will begin on August 10 and will run for 19 weeks.
