- Alan Tudge signals ‘slow, but steady’ reopening of international borders
- Australia is working towards establishing travel bubble arrangements with low-risk countries: Tudge
- ‘We are working towards facilitating the safe return of international students‘
Proving an insight into the plan for lifting the international travel ban during a multicultural press conference on Friday, Mr. Tudge said the government is employing a number of ways to initiate the reopening.
“We have firstly started to bring in some temporary skilled migrants again, but on a priority listing. We have started the bubble arrangements now with New Zealand whereby you don’t have to quarantine. It’s a very significant step,” he said.
The development comes nearly a month after the Treasury signalled a gradual lifting of the international border restrictions while maintaining that travel movement will continue to remain low and slow through to the latter part of 2021.
