It will still be a while before international students are allowed back into Australia, the Prime Minister confirmed today.
With tens of thousands of Australians still stranded overseas, states and territories will again expand their capacity to take on international arrivals and put them up in hotel quarantine.
Queensland will boost their weekly capita up another 150 spots. It’s understood we’ll soon be receiving up to 650 people a week.

While the Prime Minister has confirmed that Tasmania, Northern Territory and the ACT will be taking on more arrivals as well.
But, Scott Morrison says there’s not enough capacity in hotel quarantine to be able to get everyone back, and that means international students get bumped back as well.
There’s currently no time line on when international students will be reconsidered.
