International travel to resume in November, Prime Minister confirms
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed Australia’s borders will reopen to incoming and outgoing international travel for Australians “within weeks”.
The federal government is finalising a framework for how international travel will look in coming months.
States and territories will begin the program at different times once their vaccine rates reach 80 per cent fully-vaccinated, but the system is expected to commence in November.
Seven-day home or hotel quarantine will be mandatory for Australian citizens and permanent residents who are fully vaccinated, aged under 12 or unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons.
Managed quarantine will be required for anyone not vaccinated.
The federal government plans to work with states and territories to remove travel caps on vaccinated Australians.
