It’s been 22 consecutive days that Victoria hasn’t recorded any new coronavirus cases. There are now two active cases in Victoria, down from three on Thursday.
After suspending flights for more than four months, Victoria will start accepting international arrivals again from December 7 with the hotel quarantine program.
The State Government says International passenger arrivals will initially be capped at 160 passengers per day which may increase over time.
“Victoria has asked the Commonwealth for a short extension of the suspension of international flights landing in Melbourne from November 22 to December 6 to allow the final preparations for Victoria’s reset quarantine accommodation program for returned travelers to take place,” a government spokesperson said.
