Restrictions on Travel to Australia.

Preparing to travel to Australia from overseas.

Fully vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents and, from 15 December 2021, eligible visa holders across a number of categories can now travel to and from Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption.

Your vaccination status will impact the options available for travel to Australia.

If you are a fully vaccinated traveller exempt from travel restrictions, you may be eligible for reduced quarantine requirements when coming to Australia.

However, this can vary depending on quarantine arrangements in the state or territory to which you are travelling.

Before you book your flight, check the quarantine and other arrangements for the state or territory to which you are travelling.

Make sure that you are prepared to comply with any requirements, including by providing any required information to the relevant state or territory, and complying with post-arrival testing requirements. This also includes complying with arrangements for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children aged 12-17 years old.

Note: Australian citizens, permanent residents or their immediate family members entering Australia who have been in South Africa, Lesotho, Eswatini, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, or Malawi in the last 14 days must enter supervised quarantine for 14 days in line with state and territory requirements, irrespective of their vaccination status.

If you are planning on traveling onwards to or through a different state or territory when you arrive in Australia, you need to check domestic travel restrictions. States and territories can apply their own travel restrictions.

You are responsible for complying with travel restrictions and requirements that apply to you.
