FAQs (Vaccination Certificates and Requirements)

Entry into Australia

You can travel to Australia if you’re

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian permanent resident or
  • fully vaccinated visa holder

All other travellers must apply for an exemption to enter the country.

The Department of Home Affairs looks after entry to Australia.

Quarantine after arrival

State and territory governments manage quarantine for overseas arrivals. You need to comply with the quarantine requirements of the state or territory you’re arriving in, and any other state or territories you plan to travel on to. Contact the relevant state or territory authority for more information about quarantine arrangements.

It’s your responsibility to ensure you meet entry and quarantine requirements.

Modified quarantine measures may apply if you’re fully vaccinated against COVID-19, depending on the state or territory you arrive in. 

If you’re planning to travel on domestically to another state or territory after arrival, check their entry and quarantine requirements. You may not be able to enter or may be required to quarantine, regardless of your vaccination status.

Pre-departure testing

From 18 April 2022, you no longer need to get tested for COVID-19 when travelling to Australia.

Local authorities, transport providers and transit locations may have their own testing rules in place for departures.

We recommend you check these before arriving at the airport. If you're transiting during your trip, check the local requirements at each transit destination. Confirm any specific rules for onward travel with your airline.
