Australia ditching Covid vaccine requirement

Sunday, Jul 03, 2022 0

Australia will this week remove final Covd-19 border restrictions.

Health Minister Mark Butler said proof of vaccine will no longer be required for international travellers from July 6.

“The Chief Medical Officer has advised it is no longer necessary for travellers to declare their vaccine status,” Butler said.

“Unvaccinated Australians, as well as certain groups of visa holders, have been able to travel to Australia for some time.

“We will continue to act on the medical advice as needed.”

Inbound travellers are still be required to wear masks on Australia-bound flights and follow any state rules requiring masks on domestic flights.

The requirement for all travellers to complete a passenger declaration form will also end.

“Removing these requirements will not only reduce delays in our airports but will encourage more visitors and skilled workers,” Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil said.
