Australia ends ‘all Covid border restrictions’ and abandons its most annoying requirement for travellers

  • Overseas travellers will no longer be required to declare their vaccination status
  • Digital Passenger Declaration forms will be axed from midnight on Wednesday
  • Rule also scrapped for arrivals arriving by sea in giant step toward Covid-normal

Australia has taken a giant leap towards Covid-normal as the government finally scraps its most annoying travel requirement.  

Travellers will no longer have to declare their vaccination status on arrival in Australia, signalling an end to all border restrictions. 

International travellers will no longer be required to complete a Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD) form from midnight on Wednesday.

The changes to the Biosecurity Act will also apply to those arriving by sea who will no longer be required to fill out the equivalent document. 

It will also mean visa holders no longer need a travel exemption to travel to Australia.

Minister for Home Affairs Clare O’Neil said the scrapping of DPD’s was great news for families coming home during the school holidays. 

‘As more and more of us travel internationally and we get more confident in managing our risk of Covid our airports are getting busier,’ Minister O’Neil said.

‘Removing these requirements will not only reduce delays in our airports but will encourage more visitors and skilled workers to choose Australia as a destination.

‘And for Australian citizens, with the removal of these requirements, returning home will be much easier.

Minister O’Neil said the scrapping of the rule would mean Australians travelling internationally would have one less thing to worry about.

Airlines, cruise ship operators and other countries may still have specific travel requirements despite the change.
