February 2022:

International travel:

Fully vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents and eligible visa holders, can travel to and from Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. For more information on what fully vaccinated means, visit the Home Affairs website.

Immediate family members of Australian citizens, permanent residents or New Zealand citizens usually resident in Australia who do not hold an eligible visa must provide proof of relationship before travel by submitting an exemption request through the Travel Exemption Portal.

All other temporary visa holders seeking to travel to Australia must apply for a travel exemption.

From 21 February 2022, all fully vaccinated visa holders can travel to Australia without a travel exemption. Unvaccinated visa holders will still need a valid travel exemption to enter Australia.
