Western Australia’s border restrictions will significantly ease on March the 3rd but international students trying to get into the state to start their studies before then will receive some very beneficial incentives to help them during the 14-day quarantine.

Current and future international students who arrive in Western Australia and have to complete the 14 day quarantine will receive a $2000 one off cash payment to help with quarantine related expenses.

On top of this there will be a $1500 accommodation support package available to international students who arrive before March 3rd.

Small international education providers in Western Australia with 19 employees or less can apply for a $50,000 grant from the department of jobs, tourism, science and innovation with medium sized international education providers able to apply for a $100,000 grant.

These incentives are part of what will surely be a large-scale plan the state government has for opening the border. 

Australia has lessened in population during the pandemic and will need more migrants over the next few years to revamp the economy, Western Australian businesses are pushing hard for borders to open and the country as a whole, like many countries around the world now has a large stimulus bill to pay.

The time to start your migration journey is now, be one of the smart ones and go with the experienced professionals. Your future is too important to gamble with an unknown, unproven migration consultant.
