Australian Border Restrictions Set To Ease This Week


Health Minister and Governor General announce Australia border restrictions will ease on Wednesday

Health Minister and Governor General


Another wonderful sign that life is returning to normal after the miseries of living through COVID-19 Coronavirus.

I often think back about those days, which were’t so long ago. I think about how we needed quarantine passes, and how the malls were closed, and we had checkpoints on the road with armed soldiers. Kids couldn’t go anywhere. At some stages we couldn’t even take a walk. Yet we survived, and in some ways it seems like a bad dream.

Well, the low incidence of COVID infection has made Australia re-assess the risk, and this was the news yesterday.

Do we still need vaccination certificates to enter Australia?


From this Wednesday 6 July 2022, no. No more need to prove vaccinations, and no more Digital Passenger Declaration’s.


Happy travels!
