Victoria and NSW reopen their borders

After 14 weeks of border controls, Victoria and NSW are reopening borders to each other, allowing vaccinated Melburnians to travel to NSW without any isolation or testing from midnight Thursday.

In a joint announcement, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said the reopening will allow free travel between Australia’s two biggest states well ahead of the Christmas period.

“With coronavirus (COVID-19) case numbers coming down and high vaccination rates continuing to rise in both states, New South Wales and Victoria are normalising living with the virus,” the Premiers said.

“There are no requirements for fully vaccinated Victorians entering New South Wales unless they have been to a place of high concern in Victoria.”
