After a long hiatus due to coronavirus infection, Sydney, Australia is finally opening its borders to foreigners. Flights will start there from November 1.
Dominic Perot, head of the state of New South Wales, made the announcement on Friday.
According to the new announcement, only those who have received two doses of the vaccine will get this opportunity. Those traveling will not have to stay in the mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine. Those who receive the full dose of the vaccine do not have to be quarantined at home.
Australia closed its international border in March 2020 to deal with the Corona situation. Only their own citizens and permanent residents were allowed to enter at this time. However, in that case, they also had to stay in the mandatory hotel quarantine for 14 days at their own expense. Those who receive the full dose of the vaccine are now exempt from entering the capital, New South Wales, Sydney.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said his own citizens and permanent residents stranded abroad will have priority in entering Sydney. Skilled professionals and international students will then be allowed to travel.
Morrison added that the government is not considering introducing tourist visas before next year. However, the borders of other states of the country are closed and quarantine is on.
