Proof of Full Vaccination

You will need to provide proof of vaccination in the form of a paper or digital certificate. If you have your paper card CDC vaccination card, you can use this to enter Australia. If you have lost your card or if you are interested in obtaining a verified digital certificate of your card to ensure you have a safe and secure back up, please click here to find out more information.  If possible, we do recommend a digital certificate for stress free travel. It will allow you to pull up your verified record in the event you lose your card while traveling. 

Are you considered fully up to date on your vaccines? If you’ve followed CDC guidelines, the answer is yes! If you have a more complicated story, click here to find out.

Digital Travel Declaration 

All inbound travelers must complete an Digital Travel Declaration (DTD) at least 72 hours before to departure. This is a form that may be filled out online on your mobile device by downloading the Australia Digital Travel Declaration app from the App Store (Apple) or Google Play store (Android). You may also fill out the form online on a desktop computer here. When filling out the DTD, you will need to provide your contact details, declare your vaccination status, declare your last 14 days travel history, and acknowledge quarantine and testing requirements that apply when entering Australia.

When to Wear a Mask

You must wear a mask for the duration of your flight while traveling to Australia,, and in all Australian airports. A cloth or surgical mask is acceptable. You may remove your mask to eat and drink, or if directed by an airline or government official. Children ages 11 or younger and anyone with a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask and can provide a medical certificate as evidence do not need to wear a mask.

Testing on Arrival

Testing and quarantine requirements differ by state and territory, however most states require a Rapid Antigen COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours of your arrival. You must self-isolate until you receive a negative result from your test taken after your arrival. You can bring an at home test with you and take the test as soon as you arrive in Australia.

Testing and quarantine requirements differ by state and territory. To check if you will be subject to quarantine on arrival visit your local state or territory’s website:

Traveling with Children 

Children under 12 are considered fully vaccinated, meaning they may travel without a vaccination. However, it is recommended that if your child is able to get vaccinated, that they do so before they travel. Children 12 years and older will need to meet the same testing requirements as adults.

Fantastic Trip

Through the entire trip I kept saying to Betty that I could not believe how smoothly everything was going. It was an amazing, stress free (due to your efforts) trip. The hotels in Cairns and Sydney could not have been more accommodating. The whole trip from beginning to end was just really stress free. Taxi’s to/from airports, airport personnel, etc. were just wonderful. You did an amazing job and I have recommended you/your company to my friends without hesitation.

In Cairns (Cans) we went to the Great Barrier Reef and in wet suits(...)

Sydney - loved the(...)

I hope to return one day and will definitely contact Ana again.
