From November 2021, as vaccination targets are met in Australia:

  • Caps on vaccinated international arrivals will start to lift
  • Vaccinated Australian citizens and permanent residents will be able to leave Australia without an exemption
  • Testing will continue to be required for travel to Australia, Rapid Antigen Tests may be accepted
  • Alternatives to hotel quarantine will be available in some circumstances

The changes will be implemented across Australia’s states and territories at different times as vaccination rates vary.

Domestic border restrictions are likely to continue for some states and territories and travelers will need to plan accordingly.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
