Holiday-starved Australians have begun flocking overseas for long overdue getaways, but it’s been revealed their vaccine passports are not valid in some of the most popular tourists hotspots in the world.
The Australian international vaccine passport is not valid in parts of Europe where proof of immunisation is vital for people to participate in everyday activities. Those countries include France, Italy, Greece, Belgium, Austria and Holland.
While you can still enter most European nations with the pass, this glitch means Aussies may find themselves banned from shopping, hitting up bars and restaurants, or visiting tourism sites once they have touched down in the continent.

Although this prospect may sound daunting, there is no need to unpack your bags and wave goodbye to your European holiday dream.
