Australia has confirmed that from Monday it will lift the ban which prevented its citizens from traveling abroad without special permission.
Health Minister Greg Hunt said that from November 1, no special permit will be required to leave the country, provided the citizens are fully vaccinated.
“Australian citizens and those with a permanent residence permit who wish to travel abroad will need to provide proof that they have been vaccinated with the second dose taken at least seven days before the trip. “These changes will make it easier for children under the age of 12 to travel.”
However, unvaccinated people will still need a government permit before traveling internationally.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced earlier this month the reopening of international borders for fully vaccinated citizens.
Australians spent 19 months under one of the strictest travel rules in the world, in an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
