Sydney to lift mandatory hotel quarantine for foreigners

Sydney: Fully vaccinated foreigners coming to Sydney will be exempted from mandatory hotel quarantine if they have a negative RT-PCR certificate. The new entry rule will come into effect from November 1. This was announced by the New South Wales Prime Minister, Dominic Perrottet.

Dominic Perrottet said the state government would be asking the Australian government to ensure that all passengers are tested and cleared before boarding flights to Sydney. It must also verify passengers vaccination status before they get on a plane to Australia.
