Where Australians Can Travel

- Latest Travel Restrictions for Australian Tourists -

Last update: 11/15/2021

Australians can travel to 119 countries right now. However, travel restrictions for Australian tourists depend on the destination.

As of today, Aussies can travel to 35 countries without COVID-19 restrictions. While  Australian travellers are only required to present pre-trip COVID test results to travel to 62 countries, Australians are subject to mandatory quarantine for 22 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 or you are travelling to New Zealand. 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 travellers 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 travellers, 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 travellers 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 travellers 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 travellers. 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 travellers 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.
