Take a look at this week’s travel regulations and transit travel update for Australia



From the 20th of January 2021, the only Emirates flights into Australia will now be twice-weekly ones into Perth from Dubai. Due to operational reasons, Emirates flights to/from Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne will be suspended until further notice.


From the 22nd of January 2021, if you are travelling to or transiting through Australia you must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 (PCR) test to your airline, taken 72 hours or less before your scheduled departure.

  • If you do not have evidence of a negative COVID-19 (PCR) test, you should not go to the airport as your airline will not allow you to board the aircraft.
  • Masks must be worn on all international flights, including at airports.
