The Australian Government is reducing travel restrictions for fully vaccinated Australians

If you are a fully vaccinated Australian citizen or permanent resident, you will be able to depart Australia without needing an exemption.  

You can also arrive into some states and territories from overseas without the need to quarantine if you are fully vaccinated. In other states, 14 days quarantine is still required for all arrivals, so you will need to check state and territory websites for their requirements.

Fully vaccinated immediate family members of Australian citizens and permanent residents may also be able to enter Australia outside of passenger caps to states and territories with modified or no quarantine requirements, subject to first obtaining a travel exemption.

Current travel restrictions will continue to apply to Australian citizens and permanent residents who are not fully vaccinated when leaving or coming to Australia.
