International Border Reopen on 21 February 2022
The Australian government emphasized the reopening of the international border is for fully vaccinated international visitors. It means the fully vaccinated international visitors do not need to apply for a travel exemption to enter the country. The international visitors must have received a double dose of Covid-19 vaccination to be considered fully vaccinated.
Currently, the approved COVID-19 vaccination by the Australian government are:
- Comirnaty (Pfizer)
- Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca)
- Spikevax or Takeda (Moderna)
- COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen (Janssen)
- Nuvaxovid (Biocelect on behalf of Novavax).
What if the international visitors have not received a full dose of vaccination?
Those international visitors who are not fully vaccinated must obtain a travel exemption to enter the country. They must also undergo a hotel quarantine if they are exempted to enter Australia.
Suppose the international visitors have a health condition and are unable to obtain a full dose of Covid-19 vaccination; they must provide evidence showing that they have health conditions that prevent them from being vaccinated.
