International students travelling to Australia

From 15 December 2021, all fully vaccinated international student visa holders will be able to return to Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. 


International students will be subject to Australian Government border restrictions and any State and Territory quarantine and testing requirements in response to the new Omicron variant. 


Holmesglen recommends that you check the Department of Home AffairsStudy Melbourne and Study Australia websites before booking flights and finalising your travel arrangements. 
It’s important to familiarise yourself with the ESOS framework information about your rights and responsibilities while studying in Australia.


Based on current health authorities’ advice, you will need to be fully vaccinated with a vaccine recognised by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to be eligible to return to Australia. Learn more about the recognised vaccines on the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration website. The list of recognised vaccines is always being updated, so if your current vaccine isn’t there currently, make sure to check back regularly. 


You can start researching Holmesglen’s courses and wellbeing services. We offer a wide selection of courses for international students across many disciplines. Some of our study areas include arts and design, business and finance, and computing and IT. There are also several scholarships available for international students, such as the Pathway to Victoria Scholarship, Australia Awards and Endeavour Scholarships.
