With COVID - 19 forcing countries to close borders for international students earlier this year, Australia has managed to welcome its first international student to the country after nearly 9 months. The flight carrying 63 international students from various countries arrived in Australia on November 30th, 2020.
The students have now been requested to quarantine themselves for 14 days and follow the precautionary measures taken by the government for their safety and others.
The country of Australia was the most affected economically since a huge part of their economy depends on its international students. Nevertheless, the government was patient and made sure that they reduced the risk factors before they took any step towards reopening the borders for the students. This successful step is just the beginning towards bringing things back to normal for Australia and its international students.
