Hopefully Victoria will follow suit once they hit 80% double vaxxed. When you’re getting 2000 cases a day, it just doesn’t seem proportionate to lock people up from overseas especially if vaccinated and testing negative before departure and again on arrival.

Is there even anything stopping someone from VIC going to Sydney right now? MEL is in my 25km radius.

Well you need to do a declaration and it reads like its only for returning NSW Residents:


Will likely change when Vic hits 80%

Only with Fed authorisation, whereas wont need an approved reason to leave from SYD
The Commonwealth will removal departure restrictions for everyone. The only restrictions will be State-based incoming restrictions (ie unlimited for NSW if vaxxed; quotas for unvaxxed into NSW & all other States).

Anyone can enter NSW unless they have been in close contact venue.

Aside from when I got to be in Perth with the family over Christmas, I don't think I have felt this happy since March 2020.

NSW open for business. VIC will have no choice but to follow.

If I ever meet Dominic Perottet I will be buying him a drink and saying thank you for leading in giving us our lives back. Gladys too.

From the Presser

Reporter:

Does the Prime Minister agree with the plan?
Perrottet:

We have had numerous discussions with the Prime Minister about the state on 1 November, bringing it forward. Day won our borders open as quickly as possible. They control the international border. We so you can open international border but returning Australians and tourists aren’t going to come into Sydney if they have to sit in a hotel for two weeks locked away.

But your post said "at the moment" and right now you need a permit to fly out of Australia

You can't leave NSW at the moment without an exemption either. The exemption requirement will be removed on the day NSW opens up. The PM made that clear in his previous announcements.
Post automatically merged:

A little bit of back peddling from Dom
Now saying initially only returning Australians and not tourists
Was specifically asked this question. Open to everyone fully vaxxed.

Of which there are many in Vic.

However, why should a Melbournian be allowed to enter Regional NSW when their vax rate is much lower than Greater Sydney, whereas a Greater Sydney resident can not - some loopholes to be closed there one would suggest before 1 Nov.
