The walls are coming down: South Australia will open its border to regional NSW from midnight – after Victoria allowed residents outside Sydney to visit
From midnight on Wednesday South Australia will open its border to regional New South Wales following from a similar easing of border closures in Victoria.
Rules will not change Greater Sydney and Greater Brisbane areas despite almost non-existent locally acquired cases reported in each city in recent days.
Premier Daniel Andrews previously declared on Monday Victoria’s borders will reopen to regional NSW, while announcing a new traffic light system aimed to keep Victoria safe when travellers cross the border.

South Australian premier Steven Marshall announced on Wednesday afternoon the easing of restrictions for regional NSW residents.
Anyone wanting to enter Victoria must apply for a permit which will be coloured red, orange or green, based on the Covid risk in the area they’ve arriving from.
This applies to every arrival in the state, even those from Covid-safe states and territories which have experienced no virus outbreaks in months.
