Australia reopens international border from February 21

After nearly two years of tight restrictions, Australia's border will open for fully vaccinated travelers from February 21. This follows a gradual relaxation of the border over recent months to address Australia's skill shortages and support the economy. These recent changes have had an immediate impact. Between November 2021 and January 2022, working holiday visas were granted to 22,000 young travelers and Australia welcomed over 8,000 skilled temporary workers, more than 43,000 international students and approximately 60,000 visiting family members.
