Get ready to travel because Tasmania is opening up its border to double-jabbed Australian and international arrival on 15 December 2021! The incredible news is a welcome relief for families who have been separated for months on end and tourists wanting to explore one of the greatest Australian states. 

Tasmanian Premier Peter Gutwein recently announced the Tasmanian border opening as the state edges closer to its 90 percent double vaccination rate – a milestone that motivated the easing of restrictions. 

Everyone from high-risk Australian states and overseas who wants to enter Tasmania will simply need to show a negative COVID test 72 hours before travelling. This negative test will be the green light to being able to travel freely around the state, rather than being holed up in hotel quarantine for 14 days. People from the low-risk states of Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory will get to simply fly right in with no tests needed!

It’s no wonder that tourism bookings in the Apple Isle have since exploded following this incredible announcement. A record number of flights and accommodation have been booked as everyone keenly makes plans to see family and travel beyond their 5km radius. So if you’re planning on visiting this incredible state in the next few months, trust us when we say you’re going to want to plan ahead to secure a place to stay before they all book out (click here to see what hotels are still on offer at HotelsCombined.com).
