NSW residents will be able to travel to neighboring Victoria without having to complete the 14-day quarantine – but there’s a catch.
NSW residents will be able to enter neighboring Victoria without having to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine, a move welcomed by the state government.
From 19 October, fully vaccinated persons in NSW’s red zones such as Greater Sydney will soon be able to enter Victoria without undergoing a two-week quarantine.
However, vaccinated persons entering Victoria through a listed red zone will need a negative test result 72 hours before entering the state to enter.
Those who have not been fully vaccinated will still be able to enter the Garden State, but must have a negative test result 72 hours prior to entry and will need to be quarantined for 14 days as well as retested on day 13.
“People with full vaccinations are entitled to lower requirements because they present a lower risk,” said Health Minister Martin Foley. Said.
“Victoria and NSW have been through a lot in the last few months and we are happy that more families can now be reunited and more people can travel safely.”
The announcement came as Victoria recorded the second day of over 2,000 Covid-19 cases.
