MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Vaccinated Australians will be allowed to travel freely outside the country in November, lifting restrictions imposed almost a year and a half ago as part of the fight against COVID-19, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on 1 October.
"States and territories will begin this programme at different times given their varying vaccination rates but we expect the system to commence in November", Morrison said in a statement.
Upon arrival in Australia, nationals and permanent residents will have to undergo quarantine, which will last seven days at home for vaccinated travellers, while those unvaccinated or vaccinated with drugs outside Australia's vaccination portfolio, will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
