International students can start to return to Western Australian following an announcement by the State Government regarding new entry rules.
As a college dedicated exclusively to international education, we are delighted to welcome new students back to Perth and on to campus after almost two years of restrictions.
There are a number of measures students must take to be able to join us in Perth, including a requirement to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to quarantine for seven days on arrival. Further requirements are outlined below.
Under the new rules, international students can enter Western Australia either directly under the arrivals cap, or by transitioning through another state. It is important to note that the number of international visitors allowed directly into Western Australia is currently restricted to 530 people per week. The number of visitors allowed to enter Western Australia from other states is not restricted. More information regarding State and Territory entry requirements is available here.
