Prime Minister Scott Morrison has reiterated his intent to allow the opportunity for international travel for those fully vaccinated.
It came during the prime minister’s address in Washington DC.
“At 80 per cent vaccination rates the national plan provides for people to travel again,” Mr Morrison said.
“And that’s certainly what we intend to facilitate.
“If you’re vaccinated then … we’re expecting to be welcoming back students, we’re expecting to be welcoming back skilled migrants we’re expecting to be welcoming back –when they’re vaccinated – people into the country on that basis.”
He said he has been discussing the matter with NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian amid the state’s vaccination rates surging.
“The premier of New South Wales and I have already been working through those issues because they’re likely to be the first state that goes into that opportunity.”
