Fully vaccinated people living in Australia will be able to able to travel internationally in November, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Friday. "The government's intention is that once changes are made in November, the current overseas travel restrictions related to COVID-19 will be removed and Australians will be able to travel subject to any other travel advice and limits, as long as they are fully vaccinated and those countries' border settings allow," he said. The November target date is when the Australian government expects the nation to hit the 80% vaccination rate. Australian citizens and permanent residents who cannot be vaccinated -- for example, if they are under 12 or have a medical condition -- will be treated as vaccinated for the purposes of their travel. The accepted vaccinations currently are Pfizer (Comirnaty), AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Moderna (Spikevax), and Johnson and Johnson (Janssen), which were approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
