After 2 years of strict entry rules, Australia began opening in February, though only with proof of vaccination and negative COVID tests.

As of Wednesday, Australia has dropped all entry rules.

But if you’re not vaccinated, you’ll have to avoid Australia’s flag carrier. Qantas confirmed that they have no plans to drop their vaccine requirements for international flights. That means you’ll need to provide proof of being fully vaccinated to board an international Qantas flight.

US airlines have no vaccine requirements for flights down under.

Will you visit Australia now that restrictions have been lifted?

Do you know if they are enforcing that on their domestic flights? I have an upcoming domestic flight in Australia… I’ll arrive on Jet Start….


They had to drop it.
Now they could blame their rise in Covid deaths on the dropping vaccine requirements.


Yes. Especially because NZ will follow suit as it always does. Vaxx isn’t safe. Glad I distrust my government. No-brainer decision.


What evidence do you have that the vaccine isn’t safe?


Are you nervous?


Would anyone know if you have a flight booked to Australia from the NYC with American Airlines, but the second half of the flight is operated by qantas, whose rules do you have to follow? AA or Qantas?


Does this mean Novak can play?
