South Australia will be the first state to bring back international students after the country closes its borders due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Flight Training Adelaide location in Parafield in the northern suburbs of Adelaide has been approved as a special location for 160 students who are quarantined for two weeks and tested for coronavirus daily.
The federal government approved the plan to allow non-Australian students to return to the country.
Prime Minister Steven Marshall assured no returning Australians would be affected by the plan as students would not count towards the state’s international arrivals limit.
The students and educational institutions must also do the flights and quarantine pay.
Mr Marshall said Nicola Spurrier, chief public health officer, the SA Health and SA Police team created the plan, which meets all of the necessary protocols required by the Commonwealth for approval.
One of these The conditions were that there had to be an open state border to allow domestic travel, with the exception of the Covid-19 hotspots that might have arisen.
The Prime Minister said he expected the students to fly to the state « in small numbers » and hoped they would arrive in August this year.
« International students add so much to the multicultural fabric of SA, along with the clear economic benefits to our CBD and our state at large, with one in three students resulting in job creation, » Marshall said.
He said the Flight Training Adelaide infrastructure was suitable as the site had previously been used by international students studying aviation at Parafield Airport.
« There will be some changes, but they won’t be extensive because it’s already set up in a format that makes it suitable for the type of quarantine for these students. »
