December 1 Opening-Up

As Australia moves to its final phase of the reopening plan, more than 200,000 international students, skilled migrants and refugees will be allowed to enter Australia again from December 1, 2021.

The Prime Minister today announced: “The return of skilled workers and students to Australia is a major milestone in our pathway back, it’s a major milestone about what Australians have been able to achieve and enable us to do.”

The new entry rules for visa holders include:

  • Must prove they are fully vaccinated with a TGA-approved vaccine;
  • Must have proof of a negative PCR test 2 to 3 days prior to departure; and
  • Must have an eligible visa (working holiday, skilled, temporary work and student visas).
