When can Nepali student come to Australia?

Commonwealth government has given a green light to pilot plant that will see the phased return of fully vaccinated international student to NSW by end of this year.

650 students could be accommodated at Redfern building for 14 day quarantine to COVID safe standard approved by NSW health and NSW police.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional New South Wales, Industry and Trade John Barilaro said the staggered return of students was stage one of a pilot that would slowly expand and evolve, as vaccination rates continue to rise in NSW and internationally.

“The international education sector sustains thousands of jobs across NSW, and I’m proud that NSW is leading the way with the return of international students to our shores,” Mr Barilaro said.

“The safety of the people of NSW is paramount and we are taking no risks. All participating students will be required to be fully vaccinated with a TGA-recognised COVID-19 vaccine, and strict quarantine protocols will be in place.

Australian Catholic University, Macquarie University, The University of Newcastle, The University of Sydney, UNSW, UTS, University of Wollongong and Western Sydney University, plus independent providers the International College of Management Sydney, Kaplan, Navitas, RedHill and Study Group are the education providers who have signed up for the industry funded pilot plan.

 

Now question arises will Nepali student be accommodated in this pilot plan ?

The plan will initially require all inbound international students to be fully vaccinated with Therapeutic Goods Administration recognised vaccines including Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson, Moderna and AstraZeneca.

This means students from countries including Singapore, Thailand, the US, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Japan are among those who will be initially allowed entry.

Since in Nepal vaccine from China has been used which is not still approved by Australian health Commission. This this shows us that international student who has received Johnson and Johnson could be eligible to come to Australia prior to those students who received a vaccine not authorised by Australian health Commission. Even who received Covishield vaccine should be in safe side in regard of priority to come to Australia as international student since it is another name for AstraZeneca. Just looking at the change scenario students from Nepal can get ready for March intake 2022. There is a possibility they could make all this intake.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Industry and Trade John Barilaro said the staggered return of students was stage one of a pilot that would slowly expand and evolve, as vaccination rates continue to rise in NSW and internationally.

“The international education sector sustains thousands of jobs across NSW, and I’m proud that NSW is leading the way with the return of international students to our shores,” Mr Barilaro said.

Mr Perrottet said at the time that the NSW government was looking at ways to ensure it has “the capability and processes in place to allow international students to return safely when restrictions allow”.

 

“At this stage, we are examining options and part of that is looking at how we can bring international students back without reducing our capacity to take Australian citizens wanting to return home,” he said.
