You might have just heard that on 21 February first planes with international travellers touched down at Sydney Airport. This is something both tourists and inbound tour operators have been waiting for a long time.
Let’s start with who actually can travel to Australia.
Visa holders who meet the definition of ‘fully vaccinated’ for the purposes of Australia’s international border entry requirements, can travel to Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. For the purposes of complying with public health orders, you are considered fully vaccinated if you have two doses of an approved vaccine. Booster doses are not required for compliance with public health orders.
People who do not meet Australia’s vaccination requirements for international travel are not eligible to travel to Australia without a travel exemption unless they are in an exempt category.

It’s worth noting that you need to comply with requirements in the state or territory of your arrival, and any other state or territories that you plan to travel to.
Once you have your visa sorted, it’s time to plan your holiday. At this moment you can travel to all states and territories, apart from Western Australia- Perth (WA’s border will open from 12.01 am Thursday 3 March 2022). All major attractions are open, restaurants are busy, beaches are beautiful, the ocean is inviting and all the scenery is for you to discover.
What the last 2 years have taught us all is not to leave the plans for later.
