Qantas has now made official what we reported over the weekend. The airline will reward those who have or will get vaccinated against the Covid-19 by the end of 2021.
Eligible Frequent Flyer members can choose from three rewards options + will be entered into a draw of one million ALL points + Qantas flight passes + BP gift card. There will be a winner chosen from each Australian state.
You can access this offer on the Qantas website here.
- 1,000 Qantas Points
- 15 Status Credits
- A$20 Flight Credit (Qantas to Jetstar)
- 2 x A$4,000 and 1 x A$2,000 Qantas Major Prize Flight Passes for use on flights (operated by Qantas)
- 1 million ALL – Accor Live Limitless reward points (notionally valued at $31,800)
- A$3,650 bp Gift Card
There will be EIGHT winners – one from each Australian state.
This is a great way to incentivize more Australians to get vaccinated and upload the proof to Qantas to facilitate future travel when a “vaccine passport” is required to travel internationally or even nationally in Australia.

It’s our way of saying thank you to Australians for stepping up and protecting themselves and others. The huge impact of the pandemic on the travel industry means we have a clear vested interest in making sure the vaccine rollout is successful. We’re eager to get back to what we do best: reuniting family and friends, taking people on holiday here and overseas, and getting more of our planes and people back in the air.

When can I get started?
Applications are open from 24 August 2021 until 31 December 2021. To complete the application, you must meet the eligibility criteria which includes being fully vaccinated under the Australian Government’s national COVID-19 vaccination program.

How do I find my COVID-19 Digital Certificate?
After you have been fully vaccinated, your COVID-19 Digital Certificate will be available through your Medicare account. View How to find your COVID-19 Digital Certificate (PDF).
I’ve had both COVID-19 vaccinations but the Medicare App isn’t displaying my certificate.

Will my health information be saved?
No. The Medicare digital certificate is used only to validate your entry in real-time and then discarded. We will only store the document number but no further details.
