- FCDO advice: There is no advice against travel to Australia.
- Entry requirements: Entry to Australia is once again open for travel and most restrictions have now been removed as long as you are fully vaccinated and can provide proof of your vaccination via a vaccination certificate. If you are not fully vaccinated then you will need a valid travel exemption to enter Australia. Exemption applications can be submitted online on the Australian Department of Home Affairs website, which also lists the travel exemption categories.
All travellers to Australia arriving by air, regardless of their vaccination status, must also complete a Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD). You can complete your DPD via the iOS app, the Android app, or the online form on the Department of Home Affairs website. You can start your DPD seven days before your flight and submit it within 72 hours prior to your departure for Australia.
You should check if COVID-19 testing requirements are different for any transit countries you will pass through on the way to Australia, or if your airline has additional requirements.
Restrictions in country: Social distancing restrictions and other local measures are still in place across Australia with a number of variations across the different states that could change at short notice. You can monitor the relevant State and Territory websites for the latest information.

- Return to UK: All restrictions for returning to the UK have now been removed. You do not need to complete a UK passenger locator form before you travel, take any COVID-19 tests or quarantine when you arrive back into the UK.
