COVID-19 vaccination status

As of 21 February, Australia has one of the most liberal regimes in terms of vaccine recognition for persons arriving in the country. Persons who are vaccinated as follows can enter the country without needing to go into quarantine, or, currently, testing. In addition, persons who can prove that they cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons are not required to enter quarantine.

All participants are advised to periodically check the Congress website for any changes to public health measures relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
