International travel will be back ‘by Christmas at the latest’, government says

Federal Tourism Minister Dan Tehan says he believes international borders will be open “by Christmas at the latest”.

With COVID-19 vaccination rates rising, Mr Tehan said on Wednesday the government was getting its systems ready, including vaccine passports, to allow people to leave Australia and return without having to go through hotel quarantine.

Under the national reopening plan, Australians are set to be allowed to travel overseas again once 80 per cent of people aged 16 and over have received two vaccine doses.
