From the start of October, the Japanese government will lower Australia to a ‘level 2’ warning, which only advises Japanese citizens to avoid nonessential travel. Currently, Australia is labeled ‘level 3’, urging citizens to avoid travel completely.

The government is set to open its borders to people who have permission to stay in the country for three months, starting October 1.

From there, restrictions will only continue to ease if coronavirus cases remain low in both Japan and Australia. So, wear a mask and practice social distancing so we can book our plane tickets soon!
