Australian citizens and permanent residents can now travel overseas but there are a number of steps that need to be taken before hopping on a plane.
Firstly, travellers must be fully vaccinated at least seven days prior to international travel out of the country.
Travellers must also get an international vaccination certificate before their flight, which can be obtained from your online Medicare online account via the myGov website.
Alternatively, the certificate can also be retrieved from the Express Plus Medicare mobile app on smartphones.
People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons can also travel without an exemption but need to provide proof of their medical exemption.
After this, travellers can book their flights, visas if necessary, and travel insurance, which is a requirement in some countries during the pandemic.
Australia does not have pre-departure testing requirements for people leaving the country but some countries have requirements of arriving passengers.
For example, England requires arrivals to have a COVID-19 test before the end of day two in the country.
Travellers also need to complete a passenger locator form 48 hours before arriving in England, which can be done online.
Meanwhile, the US requires arrivals to return a negative test no more than three days before they travel to the States.
Country-specific travel requirements can be found on the Smartraveller website or government websites of the destination country.
