NSW scraps quarantine but foreign tourists still banned
New South Wales will scrap quarantine for vaccinated travellers entering the state from 1 November but the Prime Minister has blocked the state’s plans to welcome foreign tourists for now.
Australians returning home are given priority for now, the federal government said.
It comes as the first arrivals started a seven day home quarantine trial in NSW. “Sydney, NSW, is open for business,” NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said.
Qantas said it would bring forward its international flights restart by two weeks, to November 1.
