Australia reopens its borders after 18 months and vaccinated Australians will be able to enter and leave without quarantine. Prior to departure, travelers must present proof of a completed negative pre-departure PCR test within 3 days of flight departure to Australia. Proof of full vaccination against Covid-19 is also required. Non-quarantine travel from New Zealand to Australia will resume from today, Australia’s Minister of Trade and Tourism Dan Tehan said. The resumption of un-quarantined arrivals from New Zealand will be “a great boost for tourism and trust,” added Tehan. New Zealand, a country of 5 million inhabitants, has recorded about 6,000 coronavirus infections and 28 deaths. Australia, a country of around 25 million people, has recorded nearly 1,700 deaths and over 165,000 cases since the start of the pandemic.
