Australia is getting closer to reaching 80% fully vaccinated, which is the gateway to Australian borders reopening. However, phase one of reopening will still be restricted to Australian citizens and permanent residents only.
Temporary visa holders, including those on 482 or 494 visas, are still not permitted to enter Australia without an approved travel exemption.
If you go home now expecting to be able to return in November – you may be disappointed and stuck offshore for several more months. This will mean your employer has no worker, you have no income, and it may even affect your eligibility for Permanent residency.
