Melbourne. During the Australian Open in January, those tennis players who have not got the corona vaccine will not get visas. Victoria’s Prime Minister Daniel Andrews has already declared the vaccine to be mandatory for players playing in domestic sports leagues and those working in certain sectors, including health. He has now made vaccination mandatory for tennis players coming from abroad to play here.
“I don’t think any player who has not been vaccinated will get a visa here. Even after getting the visa, he will have to stay in isolation for a few weeks, which the rest of the players will not have to live.
Australia are set to replay their international boundaries for the first time in 18 months. Restrictions will be less for people who have had both doses of the vaccine.
