TRAVELLERS TO AUSTRALIA NO LONGER NEED TO TAKE A PRE-DEPARTURE COVID TEST.
Australia’s pandemic-ravaged tourism sector has received a massive reboot with restrictions on international travellers entering the country eased further.
Tourists and visa holders are no longer required to take a COVID test before they board a flight. Previously, they had to prove they’d had a negative test in the three days before their flight, or an antigen test within 24 hours.
However, international travellers must still be fully vaccinated to enter Australia and face masks are still compulsory on all flights to and from Australia.
Australia has also replaced its travel declaration card with a Digital Passenger Declaration. Travellers should complete the declaration up to seven days before flying – and must submit it within 72 hours of departing for Australia.
The easing of travel restrictions coincides with the Australian Government lifting a two year ban on foreign-flagged cruise ships entering local waters.
