Due to the spread of COVID-19 (also known as Novel Coronavirus), the Australian Government has announced that as of 1 February 2020, all travellers, including international students, arriving from any part of mainland China, regardless of nationality, will be subject to enhanced border control measures to ensure the health, safety and well-being of the Australian community.
We understand this is stressful for students. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and helpful resources for international students.
