The Australian government has announced an end to requirements for international travellers to declare Covid-19 vaccination status.
Home Affairs Minister Clare O'Neil and Health Minister Mark Butler on Sunday announced that, from Wednesday, travellers arriving in Australia will no longer have to complete a Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD) to declare vaccination status.
It marks an end to all of Australia's international travel restrictions more than two years after they were first introduced in March 2020 to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
"As more and more of us travel internationally and we get more confident in managing our risk of COVID, our airports are getting busier," O'Neil said in a statement.
"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,” he added.
People flying to Australia will, however, still be required to wear face masks for the duration of the flight.
