As Australia prepares to reopen, Victoria will eliminate quarantine for fully vaccinated international arrivals on November 1st, 2021.
Daniel Andrews, the Premier of Victoria, confirmed the move on Friday, following Scott Morrison's announcement that Australia would soon ease travel restrictions with Singapore and Qantas' announcement that it would accelerate the resumption of international flights.
Earlier in October, Australia took two steps toward resuming international travel, with the New South Wales government announcing that vaccinated visitors would be able to enter Sydney without hotel or home quarantine, and the Morrison government lifting the outbound travel ban effective November 1.
Andrews announced on Friday that Victoria will follow suit, ensuring that visitors returning after November 1st "will be able to go home" with "no hotel quarantine" and "no isolation" at home.
Travelers must have a negative pre-flight Covid test and another test within 24 hours of their return.
According to the Guardian Australia, the relaxed restrictions will only apply to vaccinated travelers, who will be able to travel to "those ports here in Australia that will be open in the same way that they are here in Sydney."
This news comes at an exciting time when the prospect of Australian immigration is growing by the day. Those interested in establishing a presence on Australian soil should contact an immigration consultancy as soon as possible to find out if they are eligible and to get ahead of the anticipated queue that will form once the borders are fully open.
