Key Migration and Visa Services is happy to inform that the Australian Government has entered final phase of resuming international travel.
From 1 December 2021, fully vaccinated eligible visa holders can now travel to Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. Eligible visa holders are people who hold the following visas outlined below:
This is in addition to fully vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents and exemptions outlined on Travel restrictions and exemptions.
Do I need a travel exemption to come to Australia?
If you are fully vaccinated and a substantive visa holder of a visa listed above, an Australian citizen, a permanent resident, or are deemed to be exempt, you do not require a travel exemption to travel to and from Australia.
Bridging visa holders, individuals holding a substantive visa not listed above, and individuals not in an exempt category, will still be required to apply for a travel exemption to travel to and from Australia.
How do I apply for a travel exemption?
You will need to apply for a travel exemption at least 2 weeks, but not more than 2 months prior to your expected travel. To support your application, you will need to provide information and supporting documents based on your individual circumstances to evidence claims in your request. Key Migration can assist you with this process.
What does Australia consider to be fully vaccinated?
Australia considers the following TGA approved or recognised vaccines/dosages acceptable for the purposes of travel:
Will I be required to Quarantine?
Travelers returning to Australia may only enter and travel between NSW, Victoria and the ACT without quarantining.
If you wish to travel on to another state or territory you may not be allowed to enter, or may be subject to a quarantine period.
