Nearly two years after closing its borders, Australia is reopening to fully vaccinated travelers beginning February 21, the country’s Prime Minister Scott Morison announced on Monday, February 7.
"The National Security Committee and Cabinet has decided today that Australia will reopen our borders to all remaining visa holders on the 21st of February," Morrison said.
In March 2020, Australia closed its borders to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
Since then, the country has kicked off its vaccination program and has relaxed the travel restrictions but only for select individuals including permanent residents, international students, and migrant workers, who must be fully vaccinated.
According to Morris, tourists are required to have proof of their vaccination.
“Events earlier in the year should have sent a very clear message, I think, to everyone around the world that that is the requirement to enter into Australia,” the prime minister said.
Earlier this year, athlete Noval Djokovic was deported by the Australian government for not being vaccinated against COVID-19.
“Your visa is one thing, but your entry into Australia requires you also to be double vaccinated,” he said.
Australia has logged over 2.7 million COVID-19 cases, so far, with more than 4,000 deaths.
