Australian Federal Government Approves International Students Arrival Plan for Adelaide

South Australia is the first state to have the Federal Government approve its international student arrival plan.

This acknowledges the efforts of State Government agencies and the international education sector in delivering a safe and secure plan for returning their students to SA.

“International education is an important part of South Australia’s economy, contributing more than $2 billion in 2019, partly spent with our education providers such as schools and universities, and also providing a boost to our retail, hospitality, and tourism sectors,” Premier Steven Marshall said.

“International students contribute significantly to South Australia’s multicultural fabric, as well as the clear economic benefits for our CBD and the state as a whole, with every three students resulting in the creation of one job – in 2019, international education supported nearly 20,000 jobs, which is significant for our state.

“Our top focus is the health and safety of South Australians. There is still work to be done with the Commonwealth and education providers, but it is important to highlight that Professor Spurrier and her colleagues at SA Health, along with South Australia Police, have been central to the development of the plan, which fulfils all of the Federal Government’s requirements.

“It is also crucial to note that the plan will have no effect on returning Australians because it will be carried out outside of the present caps, and the institutions and students will shoulder the costs of flights and quarantine.”

The Minister for Trade and Investment, Stephen Patterson, stated that this plan was the result of a lot of hard work from industry stakeholders to provide a safe and secure road for our students to return to SA.

“Industry has been critical to this plan, and the South Australian community can be certain that expert advice from SA Health has guided the plan, in keeping with the same principles that have seen hundreds of seasonal workers arrive safely in South Australia,” Minister Patterson said.

“The Flight Training Adelaide site at Parafield has been approved by SA Health for its capacity to fulfil infection control standards, with the facility able to host 160 students who will complete their 14-day quarantine and undergo daily COVID-19 testing.”

One of the Commonwealth’s requirements for when students arrive is that the state border be open for domestic transit, with the possibility of limited closures due to jurisdictionally specified COVID-19 hotspots.
