Fully Vaccinated for Australian Entry.

Australian Vaccination Requirements for Visa Holders.

10th February 2022:

The change to the ATAGI recommended definition of COVID-19 vaccine status, of ‘fully vaccinated’, to include the booster shot, will not apply to the entry requirement for international travellers arriving in Australia.

9th February 2022:
The Victorian Premier believes three COVID-19 vaccines should be made mandatory for arrivals from overseas.

The Premier believes that ATAGI will recommend to National Cabinet – which is expected to meet on 10th February 2022 – that the definition of a fully vaccinated person be changed from two doses to three doses.

8th February 2022:
From Home Affairs:
You are considered to be fully vaccinated for travel to and from Australia if you have completed a course of a vaccine approved or recognised by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). This includes mixed doses.

Current approved or recognised vaccines and dosages accepted for travel are:

Two doses at least 14 days apart of:

  • AstraZeneca Vaxzevria
  • AstraZeneca Covishield
  • Pfizer/Biontech ComirnatyModerna
  • Spikevax or Takeda
  • Sinovac Coronavac
  • Bharat Biotech Covaxin
  • Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV (for people under 60 years of age on arrival in Australia)
  • Gamaleya Research Institute Sputnik V
  • Novavax/Biocelect Nuvaxovid.

Or one dose of:

  • Johnson & Johnson/ Janssen-Cilag COVID Vaccine.

The TGA is evaluating other COVID-19 vaccines that may be recognised for inbound travel to Australia in future.

At least 7 days must have passed since the final dose of vaccine in a course of immunisation for you to be considered fully vaccinated.
