Vaccinated Australians and permanent residents
Australian citizens and permanent residents aged 12 and over who are fully vaccinated with an approved or recognised COVID-19 vaccine can leave Australia without needing an outwards travel exemption and may be eligible for reduced quarantine requirements when returning to Australia. All children aged under 12 years and 3 months count as fully vaccinated for travel purposes.
Australian citizens and permanent residents who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons are also treated as vaccinated for the purposes of their travel.
