The move marks the removal of the last Covid-19 barrier for travellers to Australia
Australian authorities have confirmed that the last barrier for unvaccinated travellers to visit the country will be removed from 6 July 2022.
All visitors, regardless of their Covid-19 vaccination status, will be able to travel to and from Australia.
A statement from the Department of Health and Aged Care said that decision had been made based on the advice of its chief medical officer. Travellers will still be required to comply with any remaining Covid-19 regulations, such as the wearing of masks, imposed by airlines.
Australia initially reopened its borders to fully vaccinated international travellers in February, having closed them in March 2020 during the onset of the pandemic.
Commenting on the easing of restrictions, Australian Minister for Health and Aged Care, Mark Butler MP said: “The Australian Government makes decisions on Covid-related issues after considering the latest medical advice. The Chief Medical Officer has advised it is no longer necessary for travellers to declare their vaccine status as part of our management of Covid.”
