Australia’s Prime Minister amends inbound traveller requirements

    Australia‘s Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated (08-Jan-2021) all inbound travellers to Australia must receive “a negative COVID-19 test result prior to departure to Australia”. Mr Morrison said exemptions for extenuating circumstances include: “seasonal workers from amber risk countries where there is limited access to testing… we need to have tailored responses when it comes to applying this”. Individuals, as well as staff, must undertake measures towards coronavirus infection prevention, including all international services to wear face masks, crew members must wear face masks and “other personal protective equipment where appropriate”, as well as “All individuals within Australian international airport environments to wear a mask”. Mr Morrison stated all international air crew must undergo a coronavirus test in Australia every seven days or on arrival, which will be determined by state jurisdictions, and continue to quarantine in dedicated quarantine facilities between international services or for 14 days. Mr Morrison added there are “no special rules for flight crews moving about, not reposition for an ongoing international flight unless they do so on a crew only flight”.
