Australia's international border will be officially flung open by the end of the year to any states willing to take overseas flights.
Fully vaccinated Australians will be able to pack their bags for an international holiday before Christmas, and will only have to home quarantine for seven days.
There will likely be no travel bubbles imposed, with vaccinated residents free to fly to any country anywhere in the world, 9 News reported.

It comes after Minister for Trade and Tourism Dan Tehan said the nation remained on track to lift travel restrictions this year.
Last week, the minister delivered some welcome news to holiday-hungry Australians and said overseas holidays would be back on by Christmas.
'I do empathise with the Australians who have been denied the opportunity to travel overseas this year. It's another reason why everyone should get vaccinated,' Mr Tehan said on Wednesday.
'We have to stick to the national plan that will see our international border open up - at this rate by Christmas at the latest.'
More to come.
