Authorities in New South Wales have said that from November 1 domestic and international tourists will no longer be required to quarantine on arrival.
Australia.- Dominic Perrottet, the NSW Premier, has announced today that from November 1 Sydney and New South Wales will reopen their borders. The state of New South Wales will become the first in Australia to ease travel restrictions and no longer require international tourists to quarantine on arrival.
Perrottet said: “We can’t live here in hermit kingdom. So many businesses rely on tourism for business and trade.”
The news was well-received by Star Sydney, which reopened its doors a few days ago after a three-month closure. The casino has been allowed to reopen for fully vaccinated customers at a limited capacity of 1 person per 4 square metres indoors and 1 person per 2 square metres outside.
Casino guests must wear masks and remain seated while eating or drinking. All of Star Sydney’s staff have been fully vaccinated. It is expected restrictions will be eased once New South Wales reaches an 80 per cent vaccination rate.
