Virgin Australia: New VAX requirements for international travel

Virgin Australia: New VAX requirements for international travel

Ok, these new rules are no surprise. Basically, they mirror domestic conditions, along with international guidelines for most other airlines:

  • Fully vaccinated using a Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved vaccine; or
  • are under the age of 12 at departure; or
  • an Australian child between 12& 17 at departure:
    • either unvaccinated or partially vaccinated; and
    • entering Australia through New South Wales, Victoria or the ACT; and
    • traveling with their fully vaccinated parents or guardian; or
  • cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons (with approved evidence & subject to state/territory requirements). 

If you don’t or can’t meet these guidelines, and have a ticket already, then apply for a refund, or you can re-schedule your flight fee-free.

That is all.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Nothing to see here – move along.
