As we mark two years since the COVID-19 outbreak in Australia we look at how inbound travel into Australia is slowly rebounding. As the Novak Djokovic drama highlighted, all inbound travellers must declare their vaccination status to enter Australia though as of 1.00am Sunday 23rd January 2022, inbound travellers can now provide an accepted COVID-19 negative RAT test result 24 hours prior to travel.
This relaxing of rules will help with the mounting Skills Shortages that Australia is now experiencing as a result of the two-year border closures.
According to the National Skills Commission (NSC), some of the most important and rapidly growing skills needed over the coming years are in care, computing, cognitive abilities and communication and as businesses across Australia scramble to import skilled migrants, the need for short-term accommodation is again on the rise with limited furnished rental property stock on the market as landlords who returned to traditional leasing in 2020 and 2021 are locked into restrictive lease terms.
