Hotel quarantine will no longer be required for people entering NSW, including those coming from overseas, from November 1.
From that date, people will only be required to take a COVID-19 test before boarding a flight and show proof of full vaccination, NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet announced at a press conference on Friday morning.
“For double vaccinated people around the world, Sydney, NSW, is open for business,” he said.
“We want people back. We are leading the nation out of the pandemic.
“Hotel quarantine will be a thing of the past. This is a significant day for our state.”
Regional travel delayed in NSW until November
Travel between Greater Sydney and regional NSW has been pushed back until November 1.
Deputy Premier Paul Toole announced the new date this morning.
