Return of International Students in Australia – What we know so far.

We are excited to finally see some real movements of Australia’s national roadmap plan to recover from Covid19 and open the borders to the world again and we are going to share with you what we know so far.

The first greatest news is that last week Australia has officially reached 70% of Australians aged 16 and older had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19! Seventy per cent it’s a memorable number because it represents the first step to allows the country to move to the next level of our national roadmap where restrictions are eased for fully vaccinated residents, Lockdowns become less likely, and the International travels becomes possible.

After reached the 70% target, international travel to Australia is expected to resume from November 1 but first for fully vaccinated Australians and their immediately families allowed to enter Sydney from overseas, without needing to quarantine. The government wants to see how it goes and also how the recognition of the international vaccination certificates from other countries goes, and then If it does go well, the next priority would be skilled migrants and International Students into states and territories that will accept them.

The third greatest news is that New South Wales has an approved pilot plan in place to welcome 500 university international students in December. Returning students would include those who need to complete the physical components of their studies – Here we can see a great opportunity for our students who have started their course online, they will likely have priority to come to Australia because of the work placement that needs to be done, and because is linked to a high demand sector.

Separately, Queensland announced today, 26 of October, that will Welcome International Students in 2022. They will be the first to use the Regional Quarantine Facility at Wellcamp and first priority will be given to medical students and allied health professionals.

Finally, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had met with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong a few months back to set up an new Australia bubble with an arrangement that will see Australia’s borders open more quickly to Singapore. “We anticipate that being able to be achieved within the next week or so as we would open up to more visa class holders coming out of Singapore,” he said on October 22.
