Australia continues to take further steps to safely reopen its borders, with additional changes coming into effect on 1 December.
As per the official media statement, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that from 1 December 2021, fully vaccinated eligible visa holders can come to Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. He further added that eligible visa holders include skilled and graduates, international students, as well as humanitarian, working holidaymaker and provisional family visa holders.

Here is the subclass for international students.

Travellers to Australia must comply with the quarantine requirements in the state or territory of their arrival, and any other state or territory to which they plan to travel.
