Reopening of international travel to students

Australia’s borders are open to fully vaccinated international students and Temporary Graduate (subclass 485) visa holders.

International students are an important part of the Australian community, and we are excited to welcome them back to our classrooms, campuses and communities.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment has developed a factsheet on the reopening of international travel to students.

All visa holders who are fully vaccinated in accordance with Australia’s international border entry requirements are able to arrive in Australia without needing an approved travel exemption.

This includes fully vaccinated international students.

More information on Australia’s vaccination requirements and travel exemptions can be found on the Department of Home Affairs website:

Information on foreign vaccination certificates is available on the Australian Passport Office website. 

The updated Protocols and Preconditions for International Student Arrivals are available on the Department of Education, Skills and Employment website.
