Overseas students holding visas to study in Western Australia can get back into the State without quarantine.

For two years, students from overseas have been kept out of WA due to Covid restrictions.

Now, international students who are already enrolled in Western Australian schools, colleges and universities can enter the State without having to quarantine. This is after WA wound back long-running Covid restrictions. Previously, international students had been barred.

The new move allows students already enrolled in a Western Australian primary school, secondary school, university, college, technical college, or other further education course to enter.

Overseas Students Starting Courses

This applies to those student visa holders who are just starting their courses and those who have been enrolled and studied onshore or offshore in previous years.

From Thursday, 3 March no quarantine is required for vaccinated overseas students entering Western Australia.

However, they will need to have taken Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) within 12 hours of arrival and report any positive result.

Additionally, the student visa holders will need to have a registered WA Government G2G Pass.

There had been fears that Western Australia would fall behind other states which were already open to overseas students for the 2022 school and university year.
