The Australian federal government has extended all travel ban for three more months. The extension of the emergency directive will now expire on 17th June 2021.
Health Minister Greg Hunt says this decision has been taken amid understanding that the rest of the world “continues to pose an unacceptable public health risk” to our borders.
The human biosecurity emergency period “will be extended by an additional three months,” Health Minister Greg Hunt said in a statement on Tuesday.
This means that Australia will have been in a hard lockdown for a total of 15 months for international visitors.
The rule isn’t just for people wanting to visit Australia — citizens aren’t allowed to leave the country either unless they are granted an exemption.
