Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that he’s in talks with the New South Wales state government in a bid to accelerate a plan to open internatio­nal travel. Should a state-led, home-quarantine programme be fast-tracked, “we will be able to move to facilitate the opening up of the internatio­nal border” at federal level, Morrison said in a video on Facebook. Morrison’s comments come as government­s elsewhere move to ease travel curbs. On Saturday, Singapore said it would allow vaccinated travellers from nine more countries including the US to enter without having to quarantine. Australia was not among those included, despite Morrison announcing earlier this month that bans on internatio­nal travel will be lifted in November.
