Hotel and home quarantine scrapped in NSW: Everything you need to know

Hotel quarantine is over – and you WON’T have to isolate at home, either: Everything you need to know about travelling in NSW as Dom Perrottet says state is open for business

Fully-vaccinated travellers entering NSW will no longer need to complete 14 days of hotel or home quarantine as the government reveals a raft of new freedoms to come into effect from November 1. 

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet announced on Friday people entering the state can sidestep mandatory isolation if they can provide proof of vaccination and submit a PCR Covid test.  

Overseas arrivals caps will also be lifted for the fully-vaccinated – allowing tens of thousands of Aussies stranded abroad to return home. 

Meanwhile, unvaccinated inbound travellers will be capped at 210 people per week and will have to undergo mandatory quarantine.  

‘From November 1, the NSW government will remove quarantine requirements and caps for overseas arrivals who the Commonwealth Government recognises as fully vaccinated with a TGA-approved vaccine,’ the NSW government said in a statement. 

More to come.
