If you are fully vaccinated and need an international getaway, Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that its international border is set to reopen on 21 February after 2 years of closing the border. "The condition is you must be double vaccinated to come to Australia. That's the rule. Everyone is expected to abide by it," he said.
According to their Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews, unvaccinated travellers will need to apply for travel exemptions and undergo hotel quarantine if they are granted permission to enter Australia. However, due to the recent Novak Djokovic saga, Morrison mentioned that even if travellers had the correct visa to enter the country, if they were not fully vaccinated or had an exemption, they will not be allowed to enter.
The Australian government shut the international border to everyone except Australian citizens and residents back in March 2020, but has slowly begun to reopen to selected countries like New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, and some visa holders.
