01. Currently three types of international students can be exempted from entry

The parliamentary wish initiated by overseas students at the beginning of the year eventually collected more than 17,317 signatures. What is currently released is a public response letter from the Minister of the Interior Peter Dutton. The main idea of ​​the letter is: In order to ensure that the Australian people are not affected by the new crown epidemic, the Australian government is gradually adopting measures to restrict travel on the border. Until a follow-up notice, all foreign citizens will not be allowed to enter Australia for the time being, unless the exemption clause applies.

The current travel restrictions have successfully controlled the outbreak in Australia. The key point is that Australia grants some international students the exemption from returning to Australia: 

1. Medical and health students who are about to graduate in the last two years, and their majors include medical, dentistry, nursing and medical health-related courses. And the student will participate in an internship in an Australian hospital or clinic in the next two months.

2. High school students in grades 11 and 12 approved by the Australian Department of Education are equivalent to high school sophomores and seniors.

3. Some doctoral students. Australia values ​​international students very much and hopes to let them return to Australia as soon as conditions permit. However, it is still the government's priority to bring back Australians stranded abroad.

In fact, it is not difficult to see that there are very few international students with exemption qualifications. We still look forward to the inter-communication bubble in specific countries and the pilot program for returning overseas students to Australia.
