Travelling to Australia 

Updated February 2022

From 21 February 2022, all fully vaccinated visa holders will be able to travel to Australia without a travel exemption, in addition to arrangements already in place for Australian citziens and permanent residents.

As of 7 February 2022, fully vaccinated travellers can enter all states and territories quarantine-free from 21 February 2022, except for Western Australia.

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. 

Unvaccinated visa holders will still need a valid travel exemption to enter Australia.

Restrictions may change at short notice.

The individual state restrictions can be found here: States (
