To our valued passengers:

 

Effective November 1, 2021, Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate families will be able to travel outside Australia without a travel exemption, on the condition that they are fully-vaccinated --https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/travel-vaccinated-australians-and-permanent-residents.

 

Travel will also be allowed for Australian citizens and permanent residents who:

  • are under the age of 12 at the time of departure (vaccinated or not); or

  • cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons (with approved evidence).

 

For information on immediate family members and their requirements, see: https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/immediate-family-australian-citizens-or-permanent-residents-or-new-zealand-citizens-usually-resident-australia.

 

An individual is considered ‘fully-vaccinated’ if he or she has completed a course of a vaccine that is approved or recognized by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA):

  • two doses at least 14 days apart of: AstraZeneca Vaxzevria, AstraZeneca Covishield, Pfizer/Biontech Comirnaty, Moderna Spikevax, Sinovac Coronavac

  • or one dose of: Janssen-Cilag COVID Vaccine.

Note: Seven days must have passed since the final dose of vaccine.

 

More information can be viewed at www.tga.gov.au.

 

Passengers vaccinated in Australia must present an Australian Government-issued international COVID-19 Certificate (ICVC) upon check-in. Those who have medical contraindications reported for COVID-19 vaccines may use their Immunization History Statement as evidence.
