Overseas travellers should be able to quarantine at home once the nation hits an 80 per cent adult vaccination rate, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.
In a round of multiple radio interviews on Tuesday morning, Mr Morrison said the home quarantine experiment currently underway in South Australia should become the norm, hopefully before the end of the year.
“That will be the model for the rest of the country, and they’re (SA) sharing that information with the other states,” he said.
“And that means you’ll be able to travel overseas once you get over 80 per cent, and you’ll be able to return to Australia, and you’ll be able to quarantine at home, not go through hotels.
“That means we’ll be able to bring more people home from overseas. It also means students will start to be able to return. People are coming out on skilled visas.”
