AUSTRALIA TRAVEL UPDATES

The Australian Government has announced that from, 15 December 2021, international students holding a valid student visa will no longer be required to apply for exemptions to enter Australia. Students must still:

  • Be fully vaccinated with a completed dosage of a vaccine approved or recognised by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration 
  • Hold a valid student visa
  • Provide proof of their vaccination status
  • Present a negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test taken within three days of departure.


There are two avenues for students to return to Queensland. The first is direct entry to Queensland and the second is entry via another State or Territory. Details of these options are included below.

Travelling directly to Queensland from overseas 


From today, 15 December 2021, international students can travel directly to Queensland without requiring a travel exemption, subject to the following conditions for entry:

  • Undertake 14 days in a government-nominated quarantine facility upon arrival
  • Hold a valid Queensland entry declaration 
  • Are fully vaccinated with a completed dosage of a vaccine approved or recognised by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration 
  • Provide proof of vaccination status
  • Provide a negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test taken 72 hours prior to arrival.

Travelling to Queensland via New South Wales, Victoria or the Australian Capital Territory

International students can travel from overseas and arrive in Sydney (New South Wales), Canberra (Australian Capital Territory) or Melbourne (Victoria). When arriving from overseas to one of these locations students will be required to quarantine or self-isolate for 72 hours upon arrival. Students can then travel to Queensland after spending more than 14 days in Australia (including the 72-hour quarantine/self-isolation), with the following further requirements:

  • Hold a valid Queensland entry declaration 
  • Are fully vaccinated with a completed dosage of a vaccine approved or recognised by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration 
  • Provide proof of vaccination status
  • Provide a negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test taken 72 hours prior to arrival.

Students travelling from a declared hot spot within Australia will need to undertake a further COVID-19 PCR test five days after arrival into Queensland. Students who return a positive test at this point will be required to isolate.
