Does anyone know where you can find any real detail on what the International Travel reopening will look like - beyond the vague news articles and announcements.

I am after the finer detail such as -

1) What date can people can atually book a flight with certainty that will be able to fly (no date firm date has been announced)

2) What does home quarantine atually look like (can people living in appartments home quarantine or is for people in standalone homes only e.t.c)

3) On arrival what are the guidelines (e.g drive in your own car to your home)

4) What about passengers living in regional NSW or interstate etc - what is the guidelines upon arrival

So many unanswered questions and lack of detail - yet they reckon 1st November ?

Having watched our leaders for the past two years telling us that covid related decisions are made on a day to day basis using the latest health advice, I don't expect quarantine arrangments to be any different. If international travel does return on 1st Nov then we probably won't get the details until 31st Oct.

While it seems most countries will require a certified PCR test 48-72 hours prior to departure which adds costs to the travel, what will be the requirement for PCR test prior to returning home from that holiday trip ? find a certified testing facility and at what cost is not easy for a tourist

So that is one more piece of the puzzle i would like to add to the list of details needed before i book that 2022 holiday.

I have the same questions... Without the details, airlines will open up more seats to Australia. Right now, only Qantas that sells flights back into Australia from December onwards, but I wonder if those flights will even be realised. Qantas even sells tickets with connections in Singapore which are yet, I believe, to be approved by the Singaporean authority (currently only very limited transfers are allowed at Changi).

I hope by end of this month, or early November, there will be some certainties already.

It almost as if Premier Dominic Perrottet read my question last night haha - I was not expecting the outcome of no quarantine - Well done NSW for showing some common sense.

hes playing politics, he needs something to put himself front and centre and make him popular ready for the next election. he's riding the downward trend of vax roll out so needed something new.


if the decision pays off and there isnt an explosion of cases and deaths he will have won politics and will sail into the win at the next election.


fyi: I support his decision, kinda sick of being stuck inside. but I doubt ill vote for him after the decade+ of selling nsw to developers by the lnp

In the same theme as the reopening?

American flight are I believe open to all people including the unvaccinated, so what is to stop the virus being carried by vaccinated people from say a NY to LA flight with a connection to Auckland then Melbourne, we Aussies and Kiwis need to be double dipped to fly but not others, so what stops the numpties in the US reinfecting us?

Rav....the answer to your question about "numpties in the US" is surely the reason why got vaccinated. If I travel to a country full of rabid dogs, I may consider a rabies vaccination. Why would I also expect all the dogs to be vaccinated too?

Yes we did and yes we are, but we have immunosuppressed people that we are carers for and so could take the virus with us but not having an effect on us. It still brings this into our communities, do they have process to mitigate the possibility?
