Covid-19 Travel Updates

As per the latest health advice, directed by the Department of Health - Australian Government, it is no longer a requirement for international visitors to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 testing

You do not need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test to meet Australian inbound travel requirements. Some countries, airlines and vessel operators may require a pre-departure test result at check-in before you can board your flight or ship. Check the entry requirements of the country you are travelling or transiting through, and your airline or vessel operator’s requirements.

Vaccination and masks

You do not need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to travel to and from Australia.

From 12.01 am on Friday 9 September 2022 (AEST), the mask mandate for international flights to Australia will be removed. This means that flights travelling to Australia which depart on or after 12.01 am on Friday 9 September 2022 (AEST) will no longer be subject to a mask mandate. Travellers continue to be encouraged to consider wearing a mask to reduce their personal risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19. Travellers are advised that the mask requirements of the airline or cruise vessel you are travelling with, or country you are travelling through may vary.

Check your?destination country's?local public health orders for COVID-19 vaccination and mask requirements during transit and on arrival. You should also be aware of mask-wearing policies of your airline or vessel operator, and the Australian state or territory you are travelling to. 

Please ensure you check health.gov.au prior to departure as health advise and requirements are subject to change.
