AUSTRALIA TO OPEN BORDERS – GlobalEventMates

AUSTRALIA TO OPEN BORDERS

The reopening, which starts Feb. 21, is the first time since March 2020 that people can travel to Australia from anywhere in the world, as long as they are inoculated against Covid-19.

“If you’re double-vaccinated, we look forward to welcoming you back to Australia,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said at a media briefing in Canberra.

The tourism industry, which has relied on the domestic market that has itself been heavily impacted by movement restrictions, welcomed the decision, which comes three months before Morrison is due to face an election.

“Over the two years since the borders have been closed, the industry has been on its knees,” Peter Shelley, managing director of the Australian Tourism Export Council, said by phone.

“Now we can turn our collective efforts towards rebuilding an industry that is in disrepair,” he added.

Tourism and Transport Forum CEO Margy Osmond said the industry was “thrilled” by the reopening, but would need coordination to ensure Australia was competitive as a destination.

This is simply great and really long-awaited news! Thumbs up!
