The Australian National Cabinet has agreed to reduce International Arrivals by 4,000 per week, about half the current figure, to ease the pressure on hotel quarantine systems around the country.

“Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that flights returning Australian residents from overseas will be slashed in half, and passengers will have to pay for their hotel quarantine, under changes agreed to at National Cabinet.”

Sydney has already set a maximum of 50 inbound passengers per flight, and 450 inbound passengers per day. This was to control the numbers of travellers going into the costly hotel quarantine.

Western Australia has also begun to limit international arrivals to 525 per week, (75 passengers per day).

South Australia has set a limit of 500 per week.

The Australian Border Force has confirmed that the actual number of international arrivals from June 7 to July 7 was 28,069. That is an average of 936 per day.
