Living in WA always has your brain working overtime, scheming up plans on how to escape the iron curtain of Westralia and return… minus the painful 14 days of hotel quarantine.
Today, there is a new “glimmer of hope” and a potential loophole to return to WA from overseas without having to quarantine in a hotel!
If you watched the news, WA has just declared that QLD will be a green zone from Friday, October 22.
This is significant because only states listed as green zones allow for quarantine free travel into WA.
A few days earlier, Queensland announced its plan to “reopen” the state to the rest of Australia.
The rollout includes a scenario where 80% of Queenslanders are double vaccinated. At the 80% stage, there will be no restrictions for those coming from hot spots (i.e. NSW), provided you can supply a negative test and double vaccine certificate. According to The Guardian, QLD is set to reach 80% double dose by 16-21 December.
This means you could fly into NSW from overseas (quarantine free), then fly into QLD (quarantine free) and continue onto WA (quarantine free).
Of course… this is all theoretical, and if we’ve learned anything over the last 2 years, it’s how unpredictable and trigger happy our supreme leaders are when it comes to shutting borders.
So, time will tell if this will be an option… or maybe McGowan will come to his senses by Christmas? Doubtful.
