Australia has reopened its international border, closed for almost two years, to foreigners to promote tourism and bridge the gap between families.

British Broadcasting Corporation BBC Australia imposed tougher travel bans in March 2020 due to the Kroba epidemic.

Australians and some others have been allowed to return since late last year, but most foreigners have had to wait.

On Monday, February 21, hundreds of people arrived at Sydney Airport to pick up their loved ones.

Passengers who receive two doses of Corona will not need to be quarantined, but non-vaccinated passengers will have to stay at the hotel for 14 days at their own expense.

More than 50 international flights are scheduled to land at the airport on Monday. Travelers from all states except Western Australia can enter the country as restrictions are in place in Western Australia until March 3 and they will have to be given three doses of the corona vaccine.

“This is great news for our tourism industry and the 660,000 people who work in it,” said Dan Tehen, Minister of Trade, Tourism and Investment. It should be noted that in the year 2019, there were 9.5 million foreign tourists in Australia.

So far, 4,900 deaths have been reported from the corona in Australia.
