Victorian Border Opens For Fully Vaccinated People In NSW

People in NSW who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can now travel to Victoria without needing to quarantine.

Relaxed requirements now apply to fully vaccinated travellers who have been in red or orange zones and the border bubble has been reinstated for Broken Hill and Shepparton.

From midnight Victoria scrapped red zones that applied to Greater Sydney areas so anyone who has been in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast, Shellharbour and Wollongong can enter Victoria on an orange zone permit, without quarantine or testing.

Anyone who isn't vaccinated requires a permit, must isolate, get tested within 72 hours, and stay isolated until they receive a negative COVID-19 test result.

The remainder of regional NSW is now classified as green zones and vaccinated residents will simply require a permit to enter Victoria.

People coming into NSW from Victoria have to stay at home for 14 days but can leave home for essentials such as food, exercise, medical care or work or study if they can't do that at home.
