However, the Premier, Dominic Perrottet, has announced that all restrictions will be lifted, regardless of vaccination status on 1 December, 2021.  


For the time being, there are still limits on gatherings, and businesses are required to check on vaccination statuses before letting people in.  


Travellers are no longer required to register their travel, but they must comply with the  COVID-19 rules.   There are also no longer separate restrictions for high-risk LGAs.  





There are only restrictions for travellers from Victoria.  All other states and territories do not require an entry declaration.  


The Premier has also announced that he'll be looking to reopen the international borders, and has called for domestic borders to reopen, so that tourism can recover.
