Australia’s border requirements are changing from 6 July 2022. Travellers entering or leaving Australia will not need to provide evidence of vaccination status. People entering Australia will no longer be required to complete a Digital Passenger Declaration or Maritime Travel Declaration.

Border arrangements

From 6 July 2022, unvaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents can leave and enter Australia without an individual travel exemption. Travellers entering or leaving Australia do not require a negative pre-departure test and cruise vessels can enter Australian territory.

All incoming travellers will need to comply with the testing and quarantine requirements of the state or territory of their arrival, and any other state or territory to which they plan to travel.  

It is important to remember that other countries, and private airlines, vessel operators and tour companies, may have their own requirements for travellers.

Unvaccinated visa holders will no longer need a travel exemption to enter Australia.
