Australia scraps COVID-19 test requirement for international arrivals

Incoming travellers to Australia from overseas are no longer required to have a COVID-19 test before travelling, reducing the stress and extra costs for tourists and foreign workers to enter Australia.

Here is an outline of current key requirements:

  • International travellers must still provide proof of double vaccination and masks remain mandated on international flights. Unvaccinated travellers may be required to quarantine on arrival in Australia at their own expense, while some countries and airlines require outbound passengers from Australia to take a pre-departure test before they can travel.
  • All travellers arriving by air into Australia need to complete the Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD) unless they are flight crew. For the link, click here
  • Travellers arriving on cruise ships must complete a Maritime Travel Declaration, documenting health and other information, before they disembark.


For full international and domestic travels requirements and restrictions, it is important to check official websites before travelling as rules do change frequently and at short notice. The Department of Health provides a useful starting point: click here
