Australia to open borders to International students, workers from Dec

Canberra: Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Monday that, starting in December, international students and skilled workers will be allowed to enter the country to help the country recover from the Covid-19 outbreak. According to sources, Morrison stated that qualified visa holders who are completely vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to enter starting December 1. Following the announcement, Australia's completely vaccinated rate topped 85 percent.

As a result, more overseas students, skilled migrants, and refugees will be allowed to enter Australia if they are completely vaccinated against Covid-19, test negative within 72 hours after departure, and have a valid visa, with skilled workers being given preference to fill vacancies. On December 1, Australia's borders will be open to all fully vaccinated visitors from Japan and South Korea.

Quarantine rules in the state or territory where they arrive must be followed by all arrivals. "Fully vaccinated eligible visa holders will be able to come to Australia without needing to seek for a travel exemption from the first of December 2021," Morrison told reporters.  The plan to reopen borders to migrants accelerate our economic recovery by helping to address labour market shortages and allow businesses to expand and flourish with confidence." Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said.
