Australia Continues to be in Strict Lockdown

On the whole, Australia is yet to fully open up to foreign travellers. The government has said Australia will not re-open until at least 80% of its population is vaccinated, likely to be sometime next year. The current total is 19%. More than half of Australia’s 26 million people are currently in lockdown, mostly in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

That being said, Australian immigration is expected to see a post-pandemic boom, sometime in the next year. As an experienced immigration consultancy firm, CanApprove advises all aspirants to be prepared for demand surge well in advance.
