It's been more than a year and a half since Australia's international borders were slammed shut, so it's no surprise that many of us are itching to get overseas for a holiday or to see loved ones.
While the federal government has said they hope to allow international travel by Christmas "at the latest", no date has been set despite national COVID-19 vaccination rates moving swiftly towards 80 percent — the point at which the national plan sets out there will be a "gradual reopening of inward and outward international travel with safe countries".
There have also been calls from the aviation industry and travellers for greater clarity on how a return to travel will work.
But that hasn't stopped many Australians desperate to reunite with family from dusting off their passports and booking outbound flights for later in the year, crossing their fingers they'll be able to get back home.
This ABC story gives you a good rundown of what your freedoms will be and where you'll be able to trave.
