Fully vaccinated arrivals from a number of African countries, including Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Namibia, Nigeria and South Africa, currently meet the definition of ‘eligible traveller’ and are subject to reduced testing and quarantine requirements.

We are working with international partners to continue the expansion of the policy to other countries and territories in a phased approach, where this meets our certification requirements. The extension of vaccine certification is reviewed regularly.
