Omicron variant: National Security Committee pauses re-opening Australia’s international border for two weeks

0 57


Australia will pause the international border reopening to certain visa holders until December 15 due to the Omicron coronavirus strain.

On the basis of medical advice provided by Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly, the National Security Committee on Monday paused the re-entry of skilled and student cohorts, as well as humanitarian, working holiday-maker and provisional family visa holders.

The reopening to travellers from Japan and the Republic of Korea will also be paused until December 15.

The temporary pause will ensure Australia can gather the information needed to better understand the Omicron variant, including the efficacy of the vaccine, the range of illness and the level of transmission.

Australia’s border is already closed to travellers except for fully vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents and immediate family — as well as fully vaccinated green lane travellers from New Zealand, Singapore and limited exemptions.
