Cons: They waited until my last flight to weigh my carry on and then tell me that I had to check it in for $80. I just got off that flight and the person at the counter cleared my bags so I understand the money grab. Also flying 12hrs and then 8hrs and not having your meals complimentary is a big problem. They are nothing but a money grabbing selfish airline. Never again

Travelers who are not in an exempt category may request an individual exemption to Australia's travel restrictions using the Travel Exemption portal.

Entry requirements

Travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure. Travelers must complete the Australia Travel Declaration form at least 72 hours before your departure for Australia.

Quarantine requirements

Unless arriving on a quarantine-free flight from New Zealand, all travelers arriving in Australia, including Australian citizens, must quarantine for 14 days at a designated facility, such as a hotel in their port of arrival.​, at their own expense. For more information on quarantine rules in the Australian states, check the following websites: New South Wales, The Northern Territory, Western Australia.

Transiting rules

Foreign nationals may transit through Australia if the connecting flight is within 72 hours of the arriving flight. They must either have a transit visa or be nationals of a visa-exempt country.

Travelers who plan to leave the airport before boarding their connecting flight or who will be at the airport for longer than 72 hours need to apply for a travel exemption here and will be subject to quarantine until their departing flight. Travelers from New Zealand and Pacific Islanders may not need a travel exemption. More information on transiting Australia is available here.
