International travels no longer need COVID vaccinations

Thinking of finally going to somewhere warm and getting away from our cold weather.

Travellers entering or leaving Australia will not have to provide evidence of COVID vaccinations as the requirements changed on the 6th July 2022.

Australian citizens and permanent residents travelling overseas also no longer need travel exemptions if they are unvaccinated.

Travellers entering or leaving Australia either flying or cruising do not require a negative pre-departure test and cruise vessels can enter Australian territory.

However, this is a federal decision and travellers need to be aware that states and territories may have different rules.


Considering this all incoming travellers will need to comply with the testing and quarantine requirements of the state or territory of their arrival and any other state or territory to which they plan to travel.

It is important to remember that other countries and private airlines, vessel operators and tour companies, may have their own requirements for travellers so people travelling need to check these before they leave.

Most states and territories require you to take a COVID-19 test within 24 hours of arriving in Australia.

You should check this and additional post-arrival testing requirements for the state or territory you arrive in and later travel to.
