NSW removing quarantine for overseas arrivals.

This is a statement from the NSW Premier:

From 1 November 2021, the NSW Government will remove quarantine requirements and caps for overseas arrivals who the Commonwealth Government recognises as fully vaccinated with a TGA-approved vaccine, helping Australians stranded abroad get home before the end of the year. Further advice about testing requirements for arrivals will be provided in the coming days.

Fully vaccinated travellers already in quarantine will also complete their quarantine requirements on November 1, even if it is less than 14-days.

Overseas arrivals who are not fully vaccinated will be capped at 210 people per week, and will be required to undergo mandatory 14-days hotel quarantine.

  • Unsure if the new NSW Premier realises he does not have the authority to open the international border. Nor can he issue visas to allow “tourism”.
  • Ray Hadley (From 2GB) has confirmed the NSW Premier DID NOT speak to the Prime Minister about changes to quarantine despite international borders being under control of the federal government.
  • Can double vaccinated Visitors now return to Australia, through NSW?

    10.17am: “if you are a person from another country who wants to visit or work in Australia, and you are fully vaccinated, you will be able to come”

    Scott Morrison, (Australian Prime Minister)
    2.39pm: “all we are talking about now is Australian citizens, residents and their immediate families”

    Confusion between politicians?

  3. Scott Morrison, the Australian Prime Minister, in a statement after the NSW Premier made his statement, has clarified that “it is for the commonwealth and federal government to decide when the border opens and shuts at an international level and we will do that“.

    The PM has stated that only Australian citizens, residents and their immediate family members will be let in.
    Tourists, students and skilled workers will have to wait. We are not opening up to everyone coming back to Australia at the moment. I want to be clear about that.

    The states now appear able to determine who is quarantined and who is not. But the federal government determines who is allowed to enter.
