Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Monday that Australia will reopen its international borders to fully-vaccinated tourists starting from February 21, ending nearly two years of strict border controls. “The condition is you must be double vaccinated to come to Australia.
Airline bosses say the reopening of international borders meant Australia was “finally back open for business” but tourism operators warned it would not be easy to win back foreign tourists.
Border closures have cost the Australian economy billions of dollars with bosses having trouble finding suitable staff in the absence of skilled migrants.

Justice for Scorpios My best friend had cancer. Borders were closed. Told him I’m at his bedside the second borders opened. He passed away. I never got to say goodbye. Hopefully someone else can be spared the same fate now.
travel_with_danika I don’t like camping, you call it quarantining but whatever, and I especially don’t like being forced to go camping so no thank you! And even IF you dropped all mandates I’d never visit just because you had them in the first place. You’re NOT a part of the free world!
