Niue's government is looking for a significant increase in funds from New Zealand and Australia as it struggles with the impacts of Covid-19.
The new premier, Dalton Tagelagi, says he's been having talks with governments in both Wellington and Canberra.
Tourism has grown significantly in Niue in recent years - from about 9 to 40 percent of GDP - but that shut down when the borders were closed back in March.
Mr Tagelagi says like, the Cook Islands, he says his realm country is also keen for a travel bubble with New Zealand.
But he says he might wait to see how Rarotonga goes first.
