Scott Morrison has raised hopes Australians vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed to go overseas and return home without undergoing hotel quarantine.
The prime minister said the government's medical experts had been tasked with coming up with a framework to give travel freedom to Australians who have received both doses of the jab.
Mr Morrison said the plan was still 'some time away' from becoming reality but was the next step in relaxing the country's strict border closures during the pandemic.
He said the first in line for quarantine-free travel would be those going abroad for important reasons like funerals and business.
Those groups of travellers would still have to self-isolate at home on arrival back into Australia.
