BRITISH-AUSTRALIAN ACADEMIC Kylie Moore-Gilbert has arrived back in Australia and will soon reunite with her family after more than two years in an Iranian prison.

Dr Moore-Gilbert was met by public health officials and members of the Australian Defence Force after disembarking from a plane at Canberra Airport.

Foreign Minister Marise Payne has said that Dr Moore-Gilbert will have to quarantine before reentering.

The academic from Melbourne University was freed earlier this week after 804 days behind bars on spying charges.
