Under the plan, from next month, and following a pilot of home quarantine in NSW and South Australia, fully vaccinated Australian travellers will be able to leave Australian shores and return to undertake home quarantine in states and territories that are ready to do so. This will be a 7 day at home quarantine and will apply to Australian Citizens and Permanent residents fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved for use in Australia or &lsquo;recognized&rsquo; by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents who are unvaccinated or who are vaccinated with a vaccine not approved or recognized by the TGA will still be subject to managed 14 days quarantine requirements.</p> <p>It is important to highlight that it will be down to each individual state to implement these plans based on each of the states varying levels of vaccination rate, but it is expected that New South Wales will be ready to implement these arrangements in November.</p> Air New Zealand to introduce 'no jab, no fly' for international travellers from1 February 2022 http://www.aspiredownunder.com/blogView.html?blogId=13 http://www.aspiredownunder.com/blogView.html?blogId=13 Tue, 05 Oct 2021 06:24:06 +1100 <p>Air New Zealand is asking customers to get ready for international travel by getting vaccinated.
