Prime Minister Scott Morrison says his country's tourism industry is gearing up for international trade again.
"The condition is you must be double vaccinated to come to Australia, that's the rule and everyone is expected to abide by it."
In making the announcement, he indirectly referred to tennis player Novak Djokovic and his deportation from Australia last month - saying a visa is not enough to get into the country.
"I think events earlier in the year should have sent a very clear message around the world that that is the requirement to enter into Australia."
The border will reopen on February 21st.
