South Australia reopens borders

Premier Steven Marshall said the state is well prepared for the influx of visitors.

South Australia has reopened its borders just shy of its 80 per cent vaccination target, with more than 25,000 applications from people to enter the state.

Interstate visitors are allowed to enter South Australia provided they are fully vaccinated and take a Covid-19 test in the 72 hours prior to arriving. But international visitors or domestic arrivals from “high risk” areas will need to quarantine for seven days.

Premier Steven Marshall said a lot of people “have been waiting for this day”.

“They’ve been dislocated from friends and family and of course they’ve been dislocated from business opportunities,” Marshall said.
