Further to our update yesterday the Australian Federal government announced last night it has deferred Wednesday’s planned easing of border restrictions for eligible temporary visa holders until 15 December 2021.
The reopening to travellers from Japan and the Republic of Korea will also be paused until 15 December.
This means the current arrangements for travel exemptions for temporary visa holders will remain in place until 15 December 2021.
The government says the temporary pause will allow it to gather further information about new Omicron variant of COVID-19.
Further updates will be provided as they come to hand.
