International students to Australia are perplexed, on account of the different deferring statements regarding the reopening of the international borders.

Australian Premier Scott Morrison previously stated that the international borders for Australia would reopen only once 80 per cent of adults are fully vaccinated. Until then orders are to follow ‘highly targeted lockdowns’.

Currently, Australia is dealing with the highly transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19, which has resulted in week-long lockdowns.

The country is not likely to reach the 80% fully vaccinated rate before December end for meeting such a target according to health sources.

Australians can travel inter-state only after reaching the 80 per cent benchmark. Limited travel to low-risk destinations is however permissible.

Premier, New South Wales, Gladys Berejiklian and Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews hold a different opinion.

Both stated they would ease restrictions and allow attempts for international travel when vaccination targets are met, regardless whether other states have achieved targets or not.

The criteria decided is vaccinating 70% of the population of Victoria and NSW or at least one dose of a COVID vaccine. In the meantime, the lockdown in Australia continues. Borders open only when the targets are met as well as the national plan allows for it.
