Australia Relaxes Border Restrictions To Bring Int’l Students Back

In addition to the COVID-19 National Plan response, Australia’s states and territories have developed their own plans and tactics to bring international students back to the country’s higher education institutions.

As vaccination rates in Australia continue to rise, the government is preparing to welcome international students back.

Key Takeaways:

  • The states and territories of Australia have devised their own strategies for attracting overseas students back to the country’s higher education institutions.
  • As vaccination rates continue to rise, the Australian government is preparing to welcome back international students.
  • The Australian government has announced the return of international students, skilled migrants, and other visa holders before the end of the year.

New South Wales has stated that international student arrivals will not be required to quarantine if they are fully vaccinated with vaccines approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

Similarly, once it meets a 90 percent vaccination objective, the state of South Australia will welcome fully vaccinated international students with no quarantining restrictions.

Western Australia, meanwhile, has announced that international students will be able to return in Semester 1 of 2022, subject to the state obtaining an 80% double vaccination rate as part of the state’s Safe Transition Plan.

The Safe Transition Plan is considered an essential step in ensuring the vibrancy of multicultural university campuses.

For Queensland, taking a cautious approach is continuing, owing to reduced vaccination rates and the requirement for returning international students to quarantine under the Queensland Student Arrivals Plan.

Beginning in January 2022, 250 international students will be brought in every two weeks, with students who require face-to-face learning and practicals, particularly in medical science and healthcare, being given priority.

It has been highlighted that if Australia does not keep up and bring students back on track by the first semester of next year, it will find it difficult to maintain its place in the worldwide education market.

International education revenue has been an important element of the tertiary education system for more than three decades in Australia.

The Australian government has announced that before the end of the year, it will be looking at returning international students, skilled migrants, and other visa holders.

This announcement has been welcomed by higher education institutions, businesses, and the broader community of Australia.
