Due to a slower than expected vaccine rollout, the Australian government has said borders will remain closed for longer than expected.
Australia.- Authorities have announced that Australia’s international borders will remain closed until at least mid-2022 to avoid the arrival of new Covid-19 cases.
The Australian government decided to shut its borders last March when the Covid-19 pandemic began. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated borders would only be opened “when it is safe to do so.”
The decision raised criticism from the opposition, who accused the government of carrying out an inefficient vaccination plan and of failures around quarantine measures.
Currently, Australia has a travel bubble with New Zealand, which was announced in April and allows travel between the two countries with no quarantine restrictions.
As for the gambling sector in Australia, Crown Perth was allowed to reopen on May 8 after the Western Australian government eased restrictions.
