Australia is all set to reopen the borders after a long pandemic closure and the country has decided to open the borders in November.
Australia’s health department Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has declared the Covishield vaccine as a ‘recognized vaccine’ to welcome back Indians to the country.
Australia is ready to reopen its door to the world. Australian Trade minister Dan Tehan while talking to reporters in Delhi said, “The pathway for our Indian International students to return to Australia is there again. With semester one starting in Feb/March next year, those International students will be able to start returning towards the end of this year and towards the beginning of next year. Can I say to all those Indian students that we are warmly looking forward to welcoming them back to Australia? We can’t wait. It’s terrific news”
Australia’s top medical governor approved the Covishield vaccine on Friday, October 1. A decision which is made for thousands of Indian travelers and students to facilitate them back to the country.
More or less there are around 90,000 students who have enrolled in different programs at various Australian universities. People who haven’t got jabbed with the TGA-recognized vaccination or who are unvaccinated will be required to take 14 days of quarantine on arrival.
The Prime Minister’s office said that ”Our government is setting out the framework for how international travel will look in the coming months,”
While talking to the reporter he further added that whatever difficulties students are facing due to travel restrictions “sympathetically addressed as soon as possible.”
When been asked about Covaxin’s approval, the Australian minister said, “It still before WHO, so obviously that steps need approval process and then TGA has to look into it”
