Australians won’t be able to head overseas until the middle of September after the government quietly extended its travel bans to September 17.
The restrictions on international trips were set to expire on June 17, however, the health department confirmed it had been stretched.
Travel bubbles could be given the go-ahead if deemed safe including the expected proposal with New Zealand.
The ban will allow some travellers to cash-in on insurance payments which require the government ban to be in place.
