Covid-19 Arrival And Departure New Update For Travelers To And From Australia

This article aims for update international Travelers to and from Australia on the newly approved policy on COVID-19 vaccination status. 

What is new about the COVID-19 vaccination?

Effective 12.01 am 6 July 2022, the Government of Australia will no longer require people traveling to and from Australia to declare their COVID-19 vaccination status. 

What part of the law has been amended?

On the advice of the Australian Chief Medical Officer, the Government has now amended the relevant provision of the Biosecurity Act 2015 which required that all arrivals to and from Australia to declare their vaccination status.

What are the other important rules the travelers should be mindful of?  

Despite the above, all travelers will still be required to comply with any remaining COVID-19 requirements of airlines and shipping operators, as well as other countries and states, and territories. Currently, state and territory orders require all the travelers to wear masks on inbound international flights as well as domestic flights.

Will there be any more changes to the above remaining requirements?

It is hard to say at the moment as the Government will act on the medical advice of the Chief Medical Officer, as and when needed. Therefore, we suggest to you to stay tuned and contact us if you need any legal advice.
