The Prime Minister of Australia and the Australian travel industry are preparing to ban almost all international travel and tourism until at least July 2021.

the Sydney Morning Herald announced today The Australian tourism industry faced a $ 55 billion blow on the timeline, with leaders preparing the industry for another year of restrictions.

Analysts and advisers are telling tourism industry leaders across Australia to prepare for an international travel ban – with the exception of New Zealand – at least until July 2021.

The industry is expected to contract even more if restrictions on domestic travel remain in place in 2020 and beyond.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison told reporters on Friday that it was “not unreasonable” to assume that international travel would not resume before July 2021: “But no one really knows. And that’s the problem, “he said.

The domestic vacation market in Australia was worth $ 54.3 billion in 2019, but is expected to fall 26% to $ 40.2 billion in 2020-2021.

Currently, all international travel from Australia is prohibited and is only allowed in exceptional circumstances.

Under strict laws designed to stop the spread of COVID-19, the federal government has banned Australians from flying abroad in almost essential circumstances.

Anyone returning to Australia must enter 14-day mandatory segregation in a hotel, under the supervision of local police and, in some cases, the Australian Defense Forces.

“Travel is still not counted for the foreseeable future. But there will come a time, and maybe for Australians who can, it’s a good opportunity to dream a little. Find your favorite Australian tourist destination, or one you would like to visit in the future, and think about what you can do in the months and years to come, “said the Minister of Tourism in May.

Qantas said yesterday that he did not expect any significant international travel until 2021.

Australia’s largest international airline is looking to cut costs by $ 15 billion.
