According to the Vietnam News Agency correspondent in Sydney, on September 22, Australian Trade Minister Dan Tehan affirmed that at the current rate of vaccination, national borders could be reopened “by Christmas at the latest”.
Australia will open its borders for Christmas
Speaking at the National Press Club, Mr Tehan expressed hope that, by Christmas at the latest, Australians would be able to travel, with a QR code proving vaccination status linked to a passport. . Mr. Tehan affirmed that with the current speed of deployment, Australia will soon reach 80% vaccination coverage nationwide so that it can reopen its borders and allow people to travel abroad.
Mr Tehan added Australians would be able to travel overseas without restrictions on destination, provided that they were to be quarantined for 14 days after returning home. The Australian federal government is working on non-isolation travel “bubbles”, similar to the travel bubble with New Zealand.
*On the same day, the Government of Nepal decided to reopen the border gates to serve the movement of people at home and abroad. The move helps to end a ban on foreigners entering Nepal by land that has lasted many months since the second wave of the disease broke out in April. In recent days, the number of new cases of COVID-19 in this country has decreased.
The decision was made after a Cabinet meeting on the evening of September 21. According to Nepal’s Health Minister Umesh Shrestha, foreigners who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can travel to Nepal if they test negative for the virus. Now the number of new daily cases in Nepal has dropped to less than 2,000 cases after hitting a record of more than 9,300 around mid-May. On September 21, Nepal recorded 1,036 new cases and 5 deaths, bringing the total number of cases and deaths in this country to 786,577 and 11,053 respectively.
Nepal has a total of 35 border gates with India and 2 border gates with China. On June 21, the Ministry of Health of Nepal imposed a ban on all foreigners entering the country via land. The new decision aims to relax the above ban to promote the domestic tourism industry, which has been strongly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
