After two years of COVID lockdown, Australia has begun to open international borders for International students
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has flagged the possible reopening of the international border by the end of this year. He said top priority would be given to Australian citizens and permanent residents keen to return home, followed by skilled migrants and international students.
Mr Morrison said Australian citizens and permanent residents registered with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and vaccinated would be given priority. “Having a vaccinated population particularly when we hit 80 per cent that means Australia will be able to open up, begin opening up to international travel again and there are three priorities; the first one is, of course, for Australians around the world to be able to come home if they are vaccinated and not be subject to any caps at our airports,” he said during a virtual press conference with the Indian media today.
Mr Morrison said the government was getting its systems ready to allow citizens and residents to leave the country and return to states which have reached the 80 per cent double dose vaccination milestone.
