Ready and set to go on international arrivals in NSW – again

Some 500 fully vaccinated students could arrive in December, under a state government -uni plan approved by the Commonwealth

It appears in-line with the one the state government and the NSW public universities had ready to roll in June – which included a custom-built portal for international students, agreed allocations of numbers per institution and priority lists of students by discipline and stage of course (CMM June 15).

If students arrive in December they will serve their quarantine in a 650-bed COVID-kitted accommodation in Redfern.

The announcement comes just about bang-on the anniversary of NSW Jobs and Tourism Minister Stuart Ayres (in charge of the state quarantine programme) announcing that NSW could be open to students, “sooner rather than later,” (CMM September 24 2020).

No faulting the state government for tenacity.
