Australia is reopening and it has some of the highest vaccination levels in the world so now it is safe for Australian Citizens to come home to work and play. Finally, things are moving in the right direction and from Monday November 1 st permanent residents and citizens who are fully vaccinated are allowed back into Australia and travel overseas without needing travel exemption.
According to the Australian Government, 77% of people aged 16 and over have been vaccinated, one of the highest rates in the world considering that nowadays only 45% of the global population is fully vaccinated.
Australia considers you a fully vaccinated person if you have had two doses at least 14 days apart of: AstraZeneca Vaxzevria, AstraZeneca Covishield, Pfizer/Biontech Comirnaty, Moderna Spikevax, or Sinovac Coronavac. As well as one dose of Johnson & Johnson/ Janssen-Cilag COVID Vaccine. Additionally, 7 days must have passed since you had your final dose for you to be considered fully vaccinated.
If you live in New South Wales, you won’t have to quarantine anymore. Yes fully vaccinated returning citizens coming home to NSW that have been stranded overseas only have to get a Covid-19 test after arrival and provide proof of vaccination. From now on, only those Australian citizens arriving back in NSW from overseas who are not fully vaccinated will have to quarantine for 14 days.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that visa holders from Singapore soon will be allowed to enter Australia. International Students and skilled workers from other countries are set to be welcomed by the end of the year.
