They check passports and visa….
Try refusing you passport when they ask for it next time checking in at airport for international travel

The airlines have obligations as part of their certification to enforce international entry requirements for passengers. There’s a robust database that makes this quite easy. There’s no such requirement within our commonwealth laws to do the same.

If it were 1:100 for a one day visit, it's 1:50 for a two day visit, 1:10 for a ten day visit. Very rough and ready logic as real life would depend
If that were true, then the NSW numbers would be shooting up since the partial release from lockdown.

I would think the probabilities are actually very small.

What if the probability of catching Covid on any one day was 1:30000. That would mean how many years before it becomes 1:1?

Exactly, there are over 8 million NSW residents who have spent over 500 days in NSW who have not had covid.

Duration spent in the state is not really a determinant of your likelihood to catch covid. Comes down to vax status and behaviours.

Difficult to know exactly what that means. My only interpretation is the same as yours. Perhaps it's there for flight crew and people going back and forth almost daily? Save them getting tested every 72 hours. If that's the case, it does make the whole thing sort of pointless though.

It will be interesting if tonnes of people just ignore the request, what would happen then…. (Hypothetically)… because the airlines are refusing to check the domestic flights covid test requirements, they’d all end up in Tasmania and then what?

Our fearless leaders will square their shoulders and lock everyone up. All in the name of keeping us safe, no matter what it takes and no matter whatever sacrifices other people have to make!

You must be a closet pilot because only pilots view passengers as “self loading freight” and weighed as such…

Ha we fly so much freight around (as well as our human freight assets) I can literally look at someone and tell you how much they weigh ;)

Where? HQ is going going gone….

That’s why I suspect this test before arrival is purely political to manage a jittery population until they get used to old mate Covid circulating around.

SA opening borders on 23 November. International arrivals need to do 7 days quarantine. No mention if that is home based. At 90% vaccination of OVER 12's 🤬 then most restrictions gone. That is presumed to be by Xmas.

No need for PCR tests for vaccinated domestic travellers prior to entry to SA?

SA leaves the WA alliance and joins the Christmas Alliance!

However of course they do it with the most convoluted rules thanks in no doubt to their chief hairdresser / health officer.

So Nov 23 fully open domestically but:

- If you are in an LGA with less than 80% double vax plus more than one local covid case you need to quarantine

- if you are in a LGA with 80-90% double vax plus more than one local Covid case you have to be covid tested (at the taxpayers expense yet again…)

- if you are in an LGA with over 90% double vax no test for you

What a messy heap of 💩

Syd and Mel will need to hurry up and clean up their population denominators on their inner city LGA’s to fix this!

Plus this approach will lock out / put in restrictions for a lot of WA and QLD LGA’s if they don’t hurry up….

Oh dear…

And international - (that’s for the other thread!)

SA announces COVID-19 roadmap including removal of all border restrictions on November 23​


South Australia will ease its border restrictions for double-vaccinated people from November 23.

Key points:​

  • Double-vaccinated domestic travellers will be able to head into SA without quarantining
  • International arrivals will have the current quarantine duration halved

Just feels like some kind of vindictive justification of a job now with ridiculous proposals like that

Does not work for me visiting SA as I live in the City of Sydney… guess I’ll cancel my March trip then.
I'm fully vaxed and have a CBR-ADL return trip booked for mid-Feb (via MEL in both directions).

I'm not confident it will go ahead, as who knows what might happen Covid-wise over the next 3-4 months.

However, it definitely won't happen if I have to pay for a test at one or both ends.

Why would you pay for a test they are free in Australia (for the moment) but yes the chance that people will test positive is increasing every single day as Covid spreads around Australia.

It should be double vax for domestic travel. That’s it.
Period.
