Western Australia Just Announced Plans To Re-Open To (Almost) All Of Australia

And the good border news keeps coming, unless you’re New South Wales, or especially Victoria. Which I am. So boo.

The Western Australian Government has announced that after holding fast for SO long, and refusing to join in the ‘open by Christmas plan’ ScoMo announced earlier in the week, they’ll finally be re-opening their borders to ALMOST the rest of Australia from November 14.

As you may have guessed by my opening statement, that does not include NSW or VIC just yet, unless you’re prepared to quarantine for two weeks.

Travellers from ACT, QLD, NT, SA and TAS are all currently included in WA’s ‘very low risk’ areas, with no community transmission of Covid-19 in the last 28 days.

They will still need to fill out a form to be granted a pass, be “subject to a health screening and temperature test” on arrival and possibly still be asked to take a Covid test.

NSW and VIC are currently being classified by WA as ‘low risk’, but won’t be allowed in without doing a two-week quarantine and a mandatory Covid test.

This news follows Queensland’s announcement earlier today that it wold open its borders to every except VIC and the greater Sydney area, despite the rest of New South Wales being allowed in.
