Australia relaxes border and visa restrictions to address skill shortage
Australia’s international border continues to gradually reopen. The lifting of restrictions on many fully vaccinated travelers in late 2021 resulted in 200,000 arrivals and 230,000 departures in December 2021 - the highest volumes since March 2020. In addition to opening the border to skilled temporary workers, work limitations on certain other visas have been temporarily lifted in response to the current workforce crisis.
