New South Wales will open its gates to the world on 1 November.

In a highly anticipated move, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced an end to both hotel and home quarantine for fully vaccinated international arrivals.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Mr Perrottet said NSW is ready to welcome returning Australians and tourists.

“For double-vaccinated people around the world, Sydney, NSW, is open for business,” Mr Perrottet said.

“We are leading the nation out of the pandemic.

“Hotel quarantine, home quarantine is a thing of the past.”

Mr Perrottet vowed to work closely with the other premiers and the federal government to meet the previously agreed roadmap, which set out that Australia would reopen when it reached vaccine targets. 

Earlier this month, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said international travel will resume in November for states that have reached the 80 per cent vaccine threshold.

“It’s time to give Australians their lives back,” Mr Morrison said. 

“Let’s get vaccinated and get on with it.” 

The border closure, in place since March 2020, was due to expire on 17 December, but will be lifted early as a result of the faster-than-expected vaccine rollout.
