It seems that nothing is set in stone in Australia, especially there opening the border plans for international students in pursuit of their academic goals.

The federal government releases weekly statistics on vaccination rates by comparing the rates from the initial report on 1 August with subsequent messages and the locations with the most significant weekly percentage gain in vaccination as well as the highest increase in COVID cases since the data was released.

Australia’s national plan to open borders may be based on the current situation but it is subject to change. The Premier’s statements have put matters in abeyance, “States need not necessarily comply with Australia’s national plan to reopen its international borders once 80% of people are vaccinated”.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and ATC Chief Minister Andrew Barr comply with easing restrictions for travel only after meeting 70 % vaccination targets.

Premier Mark McGowan of Western Australia finds ‘no reason to rush’ even when vaccination rates cross past 80%. He suggests reopening only early next year. Western Australia has the lowest vaccination rate in Australia.

Until then, states will have to follow ‘highly targeted lockdowns’. The statement, however, makes queries about Australia’s borders reopening for international students much harder to answer.
