‘Game changer’: NSW scraps quarantine for fully vaccinated overseas students


Fully vaccinated international students will be able to return to New South Wales without having to undergo quarantine ahead of the 2022 academic year, a move which leaders in the education sector say is a game changer.

The first flight with 250 students from all around the world will arrive in Sydney in early December with another 250 to touch down before the year’s end.

Premier Dominic Perrottet says it is a significant milestone in the state’s roadmap to recovery, one which Universities Australia’s CEO Catriona Jackson says is achievable thanks to the state’s high vaccination coverage.

“We’re very close to the finish line here, we’re looking really, really optimistic for students to get back into Australia in time for first semester next year, back into classes with their friends, back making the fantastic contribution we all know they make,” she said.

“The game has completely changed because we’ve really upped our act on the level of vaccination we’ve got here in this country and these students are doing the right thing, being very careful, getting their TGA-approved vaccines before they come back.”
