Updates on the arrival of international students to Melbourne
Updated: 23 November 2021
We’re very excited to shortly be welcoming you back to Swinburne. You are part of our vibrant community and we’ve missed you! Whether you’re a returning student or joining us for the first time, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make your transition smooth and stress-free.
The Australian Government has announced that from 1 December 2021, fully vaccinated international students will be able to travel to and from Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. Swinburne welcomes this announcement. Further information is available on the Australian Government’s Home Affairs website. It is also important to review the Victorian Government’s information for returned overseas travellers.
Our campuses are operating under COVID-safe regulations, so you can be confident in your decision to join us, when the time comes. You can also email an International Student Advisor on firstname.lastname@example.org about your personal situation at any time.
“We are delighted to be able to send a strong signal to our students that we are looking forward to having them back onto our campuses where they have been sorely missed since the beginning of the pandemic.”
Professor Pascale Quester , Vice-Chancellor
