The Australian state of Queensland will allow vaccinated visitors to enter without having to quarantine from this weekend.

State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the region was ready to reopen now 90% of its population were double-jabbed.

Ms Palaszczuk said that, from 1am on Saturday 22 January, vaccinated visitors will have to take a rapid antigen test (RAT) within 24 hours of arrival.

“You will not have to do our quarantine, you are free to come in,” she said.

“We’re asking you to do a RAT test within 24 hours.

“This is consistent with other states – if national cabinet decides to change that down the track, so be it, but we do believe that now is the right time with our vaccination rates.”

She added: “I know a lot of people have sons and daughters overseas or parents or brothers and sisters overseas.”
