On 30th November 2020, 63 international students from five different countries landed in Darwin from Singapore. Those international students entering Australia for the first time since last March will be on a two-week mandatory quarantine.
Those students from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam, and Indonesia are the first cohort of international students to be permitted into Australia since March 20.
They were students of Charles Darwin University, who was taken to the Northern Territory government-run quarantine site at Howard Springs, where they must stay for 14 days.
The students were required to test negative for coronavirus 72 hours before departing for Darwin. The students covered the costs of the charter flight and CDU will pay for their quarantine.
