As borders around the country remain closed, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has dashed hopes restrictions will be lifted in time for Christmas.
Stepping foot off a plane with passport in hand and into an airport overseas feels like a distant memory for most.
While other countries are reopening their borders to international travel, and places like the USA are lifting overseas travel restrictions for residents, Australians remain confined to travelling within their own state or territory.
During a press conference in Canberra on Friday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison dashed the hopes of would-be globe trotters hoping to head overseas, announcing that Australia’s border would remain closed indefinitely after more than four months of barring citizens and permanent residents from leaving the country.
“International travel constraints on inbound arrivals to Australia should be continued in their current form,” he said following the national cabinet meeting.
“We look forward to at some point that that might be able to be altered but at this point we are not going to put any further strain on the quarantine arrangements around the country and that will remain in place now for some months.”
