Health and safety

Participants at the 2023 Rotary International Convention in Melbourne, Australia, are no longer required to provide proof of full vaccination or a negative test result for COVID-19. We continue to monitor COVID-19 and other health developments across the globe and will follow health safety guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and government of Australia, as well as applicable state and local laws. We will provide updates to this page as needed.

Before You Leave Home

Please review the current guidelines on international travel to Australia.

Additionally, Rotary International encourages all participants to:

  • Get your flu shot
  • Get up-to-date with your COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots
  • Test regularly to detect COVID-19 and isolate if you are infected
  • Learn the vaccine and testing requirements for all the destinations in your itinerary
  • Purchase appropriate travel insurance
