International Student Visa Holders Return To Australia

In what we think can only be considered a positive sign, the first charter flight of international students arrived in Darwin this week under a pilot program to bring students back to Australia.

Up to 70 students from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam, and Indonesia arrived at Darwin International Airport on Monday, marking the first time international students have been allowed into the country since March 20.

All of the students will be transferred directly to quarantine facility which used to be an oil and gas companies workers camp based in Darwin where they will begin their 14 days of quarantine.

Charles Darwin University is the first Australian university to allow international students to arrive as part of this pilot program. Previous similar programs were put on hold due to the second wave of the coronavirus in June this year.

Though this return by international students represents baby steps for the return of student migration in Australia. Hopefully, more international students will be able to venture into Australia to commence there studies in the very near future
