Domestic border restrictions have ended for nearly all States, meaning you:
- don’t need to apply for a border pass
- won’t need a Covid test
- won’t need to quarantine
However, some States and service operators do require proof of vaccination. So all that is required to travel for most Discover Australia packages is to be fully vaccinated.
Even WA has now opened up! It is expected that any remaining temporary restrictions will end or ease over coming weeks – since all governments have detailed strategies to live with Covid and to enable their tourism industry to flourish again. See current travel requirements here.
Travel Insurance (with Covid Cover)
Many travel insurance providers are now offering good cover for Covid, including:
- Travel disruptions and additional expenses due to Covid
- Positive Covid test before travel
- Positive Covid test during travel (including need to change travel arrangements / isolation)
- Cancellation Cover
- Medical expenses cover
Insurance cover can be very inexpensive, like only $150 for three weeks in Europe#. We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance with Covid cover.
