Guess what? Western Australia has uncovered its plan to reopen its border to international students!

Premier Mark McGowan last week announced that Western Australia will lift the border restrictions and allow international students’ mobility once the state achieves 90% Covid-19 vaccination rates, which is likely to happen in late January or early February. 

On Wednesday, Education Minister Sue Ellery announced that students will be back on campus by next year. WA is expected to notify a set date for the international students to enter the state when the state achieves an 80% vaccination rate which is anticipated to happen by mid-December, provided they are fully vaccinated. Minister Sue Ellery also informed how the state has plans to launch the campaign aiming to welcome international students for the 1st semester.

Additionally, she also mentioned that the McGowan Government will coordinate with the airlines to ensure that there are enough flights to facilitate the return of international students. 

Eligibility criteria to enter Western Australia:

  • Fully vaccinated individuals are eligible.
  • Must provide a PCR report taken 72 hours prior to departure showing that you are tested negative.
  • Must undertake a test upon arrival.
  • No caps on the number of arrivals and quarantine is not required.
  • A G2G pass is required.

Note: All international individuals including international students are subject to the above-mentioned conditions.
