The government has announced that soon fully vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents will be eligible for international travel without needing a travel exemption.
Australian citizens and permanent residents aged 12 or above who are fully vaccinated with an Australian government-recognized vaccine will be eligible to travel without seeking a travel exemption. This is expected to start in November and more information regarding this will be provided soon. Also, children under the age of 12 and those who are unable to get vaccinated due to health reasons will also be eligible to travel without a travel exemption. The ineligible Australian citizens and the permanent residents must follow the current border process while leaving and returning to Australia.
Also, the Australian citizens and permanent residents returning to Australia who are fully vaccinated or under 12, may be eligible for reduced quarantine arrangements.
