Where Australians Can Travel

- Latest Travel Restrictions for Australian Tourists -

Last update: 4/11/2021

Australians can travel to 116 countries right now. However, travel restrictions for Australian tourists depend on the destination.

As of today, Aussies can travel to 31 countries without COVID-19 restrictions, while 58 countries require just a negative pre-trip PCR test from Australian travelers. Moreover, Australians are subject to mandatory quarantine for 27 other international destinations.

Although, in this guide, you will learn where Australians can travel now, bear in mind that there is a ban on all overseas travel, unless you are granted an exemption. Exemptions include travel for work, travel for humanitarian or aid purposes, and travel for urgent medical treatment. You can find more information on the Department of Health website.

Our article helps you find which countries allow travelers from Australia to enter so that when the Australian government lifts the international travel restrictions, you know which countries you can visit.

Where can Australians travel right now map

On the following map of countries open to Australian travelers, you will find all the places Aussies can travel to right now.

Where can Australians travel

We’ve sorted the countries Australians can travel to by entry requirements.

I’d like to point out that it’s essential to have travel insurance that covers COVID-19, whether or not it’s an entry requirement for your destination (although many countries already include it in their entry requirements).

Also, these new COVID-19 entry restrictions do not exempt travelers from needing a valid tourist visa if it was already required before the pandemic. You can check whether you need a visa to travel below.

Additionally, keep in mind that some countries may go into lockdown after opening their borders to tourism. We have written specific guides for all the places Australians can travel to, where you can find out the current situation in the country, if there is a lockdown or curfew mandates in place, and if hotels, restaurants, and attractions are open to tourism.

Countries Australians can travel to

Below, you can see where Australians can travel to, as well as entry requirements for Australian travelers and important information to consider.

Albania

One of the best places to travel right now is Albania, since there are absolutely no restrictions for Australian travelers. Ever since Albania reopened for tourism on June 15, 2020, there has been no requirement for a PCR test for entry or for visitors to quarantine upon arrival. However, all travelers will be subject to health screenings upon arrival.

More information is available here.

Andorra

As long as Australia remains on the list of third countries that the EU recommends lifting travel restrictions to, Australian residents can travel to Andorra. However, they will have to enter via Spain or France, since Andorra does not have its own airport. This means that Australians also have to abide by Spanish and French restrictions, which can be found on the official websites of Spain and Catalonia and on the French government’s website.

Additionally, if they plan to spend more than three nights in Andorra, Australian visitors will have to have a negative PCR or TMA test result from within 72 hours of arrival in Andorra. More information is available here.

Wondering where Australians can travel right now? Anguilla is a great option, although you’ll need to purchase travel insurance, fill in a Visitor Application Form, and obtain a negative PCR COVID test result 3 to 5 days before you travel.

You’ll also be required to take a PCR test once you arrive in Anguilla and then to quarantine for ten days. After that, you need to take a second PCR test. If it’s negative, you can explore Anguilla freely. More information is available on Anguilla’s official tourism website.

Antigua and Barbuda is another one of the places Australians can travel right now. Since the country reopened for tourism on July 4, 2020, travelers have needed to present evidence of a negative PCR COVID test taken within 7 days of their arrival in Antigua and Barbuda.
