When will Australia’s borders open to the United Kingdom? Important dates.
AUSTRALIA has kept its borders closed during the coronavirus outbreak, leaving persons stranded in other countries; when will it open its borders to the United Kingdom?
As part of its zero Covid policy, Australia is maintaining stringent lockdowns and border control, although more than 34,000 Australians are currently trapped abroad. Some people returned home after a brief travel bubble between New Zealand and Australia, however the bubble has been blocked for two months due to an increase in instances.
Australia is on the UK government’s green list of countries, so visitors won’t have to isolate themselves when they return.
However, present Australian regulations prevent British citizens from visiting the nation, and there are no indicators that this will change very soon.
Due to the spread of the Delta variety, Sydney is currently under lockdown, with fears that the outbreak could worsen.
“We can only assume that things are likely to become worse before they get better given the quantity of infected persons in the community,” Gladys Berejiklian, the premier of New South Wales, whose capital is Sydney, said.
New South Wales police have requested 300 military men to assist in enforcing stringent lockdown conditions today.
Experts have warned that restrictions could last until September, and that overseas travel may not be possible until next year.
In May 2021, Australia’s finance minister, Simon Birmingham, informed local media that “borders won’t be flung open at the start of next year… given the uncertainties that exist not only in the vaccine’s pace of implementation, but also in the vaccine’s effectiveness against different Covid types, as well as the vaccine’s durability and effectiveness.”
In Australia, an average of 186 new illnesses are reported per day.
According to data, the country has distributed at least 11,795,236 doses of COVID vaccine.
This quantity is enough to vaccinate around 23.3 percent of the country’s population if each person requires two doses.
Due to a scarcity of the Pfizer vaccine and worries about the AstraZeneca vaccine, the vaccination effort in Australia has come to a halt.
And there’s still a long way to go, with Prime Minister Scott Morrison stating that 80 percent of Australia’s adults must be vaccinated before the border can be reopened.
Mr Morrison told a press conference that Australia was now in phase A of its coronavirus programme, which is the suppression phase.
