The Government has announced that International students abroad can return to Queensland from January.

International Students

It has been more than a year and a half since Australia closed its international border. Australia plans to open the border in December. Many international students have been stranded abroad since the border was closed last March.

There are more than 20,000 students enrolled in universities in Queensland alone. These students from more than 160 countries are studying online. Queensland offers admission to international students, giving them hope. International students will be able to return to the state from January 2022. Preference will be given to those in the field of medical research or in the field of Allied Health.

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said he was seeking the federal government’s approval for admitting students.

According to the current plan, 250 students can reach Queensland in two weeks. There will be a gradual increase in this range

Returning students must receive both doses of the vaccine. Arriving at Brisbane Airport, they will be taken by bus to the Wellcamp Quarantine Hub in Tumba. Here they have to quarantine. Minister Stirling Hinchliffe pointed out that students need to be quarantined until Queensland records a huge increase in vaccination rates

New South Wales and Victoria have announced that they will be admitting international students from November. But foreigners in both states do not need quarantine. The ACT has also announced that it will be admitting students early next year. The Queensland state border guidelines have been released after a long period of criticism.
