NSW and Victoria scrap 72 hour isolation period for international arrivals

Rate this post

Fully-vaccinated international arrivals no longer have to isolate for 72 hours in both Victoria and New South Wales.

The change to isolation measures comes after NSW recorded 2213 COVID-19 cases, its highest number since the onset of the pandemic.

The change in isolation measures will come into effect Tuesday, 21 December and extends to flight crews.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said the changes are a move towards consistent COVID-19 requirements.

“We know it has been a challenging time for international travel with new rules and the emergence of the Omicron variant, but this announcement is about simplifying the process and making sure Australia’s two biggest cities have a consistent approach,” Mr Perrottet said.

“This decision has been made with safety remaining the top priority, which is why all arrivals must return a negative PCR test before they can exit isolation and have an additional test following that.”
