South Australia has eased its border rules with NSW and Victoria, meaning some travellers from the state will now have more freedoms with vaccine rates on the rise.
Police commissioner Grant Stevens has given the go-ahead for restriction-free transit travel through Sydney Airport, and original quarantine rules that had international travellers who’d quarantined in Sydney to also take an additional two-weeks isolation once in SA are also now off the books.
Reinstatement of the NSW Cross Border Corridor has also been implemented, meaning anyone who hasn’t left the corridor or associated with someone outside the corridor within the past 14 days will be allowed to travel anywhere within the state.
Victorian Cross Border travellers are also now no longer required to produce evidence of a covid test or a negative test result, within seven days before their arrival. They further won’t be required to undertake a test within 48 hours of entering South Australia
These changes come as Health Minister Stephen Wade explained that SA’s borders will reopen “within weeks”. He’d declined to specify a deadline, but said modelling would show the way forward for our state. It’s been said that SA would reopen once double vaccination rates hit 80 per cent, with the state currently standing at 61 per cent.
