It's actually highly recommended for recovered patients to still have their two shots of vaccine. So given that, I agree- get your double jab and that is it. I wonder why this is even so hard- my best guess it's all those moronic anti-vaxxers spreading incorrect information online.There is no elevated medical risk for a covid 19 recovered patient having a covid 19 vaccine, so best there is only one rule - double jabbed with a approved vaccine you are welcome, if not HQ or no arrival for you. Simple.
Well another take is that it highlights that they were never interested in allocating enough resources to have anywhere close to a reasonable arrivals cap. NSW did the best of all the states, but to solve the problem even they needed to do multiple times what they were doing before the arrivals cap cuts.I think the too many resources is thinly veiled "we just know this is stupid when there is so much covid floating around anyway"

So my fiance cannot get any other vaccine as she already got Sinopharm
It's carefully planned messaging to transition the rabid zero covid base they themselves created.Yup agreed. All of this is just ‘we are doing something don’t stress’ muddling around that will have very little effect apart from to annoy people and deter travellers.
That would explain why a lot of countries require either a certificate of vaccination OR a certificate of recovery as proof of immunity.So why are we banning those who have had covid from entering Australia.Virtually the same risk as for fully vaccinated people.
OR a certificate of recovery

I'm guessing probably a QF repatriation flight probably stopping in Darwin without letting passengers off there. I don't think they'd be funding a flight to fly with a much smaller number going non-stop from London to Melbourne.The article mentions it will be a "special flight from London to Melbourne" -- Does anybody know what flight it would be?
Singapore Airlines welcomes recent announcements to reopen the New South Wales international border to fully vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family members from 1 November 2021.
Over the course of the past 18 months, Singapore Airlines has continued to operate to Australia, keeping key trade channels open and providing a means for essential travel. Due to the international arrival caps, only one flight a day was allowed to carry a limited number of travellers into Sydney, with the remaining flights operating as cargo-only.
To support the return of more Australians and the reunification of family and friends, Singapore Airlines has opened sales on all 17 weekly flights from Singapore to Sydney for eligible customers. These flights will be shown as “For Eligible Passengers Only”, and will be available for sale via singaporeair.com or your preferred travel agent. KrisFlyer redemption bookings will be progressively made available for sale from 23 October 2021.
Eligibility to travel on these services is determined by the Australian Government and must meet the following criteria:
For unvaccinated passengers already booked on SIA traveling under the cap system into Sydney, we will remain guided by the local authorities on how to facilitate such passengers within the revised international arrival caps that will come into effect from 1 November 2021. We will assist such customers with their bookings once the authorities provide details.
For full details on Singapore Airlines flights to Sydney, please visit our dedicated webpage. This resource will be regularly updated in line with the latest Australian Government Regulations.
Prior to booking, customers are encouraged to confirm their eligibility for travel to Sydney uncapped on these flights, as well as any restrictions or measures that apply for Australian Citizens and permanent residents departing or arriving into Australia via the Department of Home Affairs website.
Singapore Airlines’ flights operating into other Australian cities continue under Australia’s existing cap system until further notice. All services departing from Australia will continue to operate as scheduled.
As Australia begins to reopen to the world, we remain committed to working closely with all levels of Government to operationalise plans to support the safe and sustainable re-opening of Australia’s borders, and look forward to welcoming you on board again soon.
