Visiting Friends & Family in Australia

VFR 1 svg

We know being separated from your friends and family during the pandemic has been tough. Like you, we can’t wait to start visiting our loved ones Down Under again. And, with the Australian government announcing its plans to start re-opening borders for fully vaccinated citizens and residents in November 2021 – reunions are definitely on the horizon.

The first stage will be the phasing out the current mandatory 14-day quarantine at a designated facility, and replacing it with seven days' home quarantine. The cap on the number of travellers entering Australia will also be removed. Indeed, Melbourne and Sydney are both removing their caps, offering opportunities for Aussies to see their loved ones this Christmas

That said, all the individual states and territories are taking their own approach, so it can get complicated. That’s why we’re here to help, every step of the way! Our expert Consultants have the latest, trusted travel advice and have worked in travel for years, so know how to get you back to Australia in ways you might not even realise. Here’s why:
