LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
When will the borders with Australia and New Zealand reopen? Voices from the first state premiers in Australia are getting louder. New South Wales is well on its way to meeting the 70% double dose vaccination goal. Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian has announced that restaurants, pubs and even domestic flights will be open again. With the 80% vaccination mark, overseas flights should also be possible. It is believed that the first routes will be between residents from NSW and the UK.
The Sydney Morning Herald also announced earlier this week that fully vaccinated Australians can use their vaccination records to cross international borders. This decision is to come into force in November. Qantas announced in August that they intend to resume international flights from December 18, 2021.
All in all, these are not statements from the Australian government. However, they anticipate that international travel to Australia will be possible again in the first quarter of 2022. (Source: news.com.au)
Everything depends on the further course of the vaccination quota. However, if you consider that Australia only started vaccinating on a larger scale a few weeks ago, they have come a long way. It is believed that the borders will be reopened when 80% of all Australians are vaccinated.
We are keeping our fingers crossed and of course we will keep you up to date.
