Australia: After almost two years, Australia will reopen its international borders and welcome fully vaccinated tourists from February 21. This will mark the ending of two years of misery for the tourism sector and revival of migration into the world No. 13 economy.
While the international borders have been opened since late 2021, entry has only been allowed for citizens, permanent residents and their families. It was later expanded to international students, backpackers and migrant workers.
As per the Australian authorities, with more than nine in 10 Australians aged over 16 fully vaccinated, new cases and hospitalisations have slowed down. Thus paving way for opening of the borders.
