Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison Morrison plans to discuss border bans and limits on overseas arrivals with state governors at a cabinet meeting tomorrow. The long-stalled pilot program for overseas students to return to Australia is expected to be on the agenda again, and the prime minister will push states to open their borders before Christmas to allow Australians to visit relatives abroad.

A review of the current policy of hosting up to 4,000 international visitors per week is expected tomorrow by the relevant political leader. There are concerns that overseas Australians will have to buy business class tickets to return to Australia or face delays.

Federal government sources say Morrison may reconsider a pilot program for students to return to South Australia South Australia to allow them to arrive in Adelaide via Singapore, pending the completion of the immigration quota.

The current weekly limit on arrivals has been in effect since July, taking into account the capacity of state-segregated hotels and the deterioration of the state's new crown.

South Australia government speaker earlier confirmed that the state's pilot program is ready and is awaiting federal government approval.

The Federal Education minister, Tiehan (Dan Tehan), said state governors expected "to ensure that foreign students do not occupy places to return from overseas ".

In addition, Morrison is expected tomorrow to promote a new border initiative, that states only restrict the movement of people to and from epidemic hot spots, rather than a comprehensive "closure ".

He said in parliament on Tuesday :" Our goal is to get Australians to work by Christmas, to reunite with their families, to return to their friends, and to look forward to positive year of 2021...... We can not allow Australia to become a fragmented country under the new crown. "

The Prime Minister will urge the states to return to the "unseal" road map developed in May, when the second wave of outbreaks in the state was not yet in place.

South Australian Governor Marshall (Steven Marshall) announced last month that the state's proposal to return 300 students to Adelaide via Singapore had met the health and safety requirements of the federal government but was still finalizing logistical arrangements.

However, the pilot program for overseas students to return to Australia is controversial in South Australia and other states. Earlier polls showed that most South Australians opposed the plan because some of their relatives and friends overseas or in other states were currently unable or not allowed to go home.

The South Australian government and the international education industry believe, however, that it is important to validate the concept of "safe corridors "(Secure Corridors) and help sustain the international education industry. Each year, the industry injected about A $2 billion into South Australian economic.
