Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that the 18-month travel ban for Australians will be lifted from November, Reuters reported.

Opening the international border to citizens and permanent residents will involve home quarantines in eight Australian states and territories, Morrison said, meaning some parts of the country will open earlier than others.

It's time to bring Australians back to their lives. We saved lives, Morrison noted.

Morrison closed the international border in March 2020. Since then, only a limited number of people have been granted permission to leave the country for critical business or humanitarian reasons.

Morrison said he expects the first home quarantine systems to launch in November, but the timetable will be set by individual states and territories.
