Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is set to announce the country will open its borders to the world in November, as much as a month before it was initially planned.
Australian media reports the announcement will be made on Friday evening.
Unlike other countries, Australia isn’t intending to restrict travel to countries based on their COVID-19 situation. There will be no red, yellow, green zones - vaccinated people will be free to travel anywhere in the world so long as they quarantine at home for seven days upon return.
According to 7News, it will be up to each state as to whether they accept flights from overseas, and they must have reached a vaccination level of around 80 percent.
More to come.
