There is excitement in Australia following confirmation its border is reopening to the world. 

International border restrictions will be lifted for anyone who's fully vaccinated in two weeks on February the 21st. 

However, states and territories will be able to keep their own cap and quarantine requirements in place. 

Australian correspondent Donna Demaio told Kate Hawkesby the news is being well received by tourism operators and the general public. 

“Tourism bodies have been begging for this for quite a while now. QANTAS chief Alan Joyce says it means Australia is finally back open for business.”
