Already-enrolled international students can now enter Western Australia, as part of the continued review of border controls based on the latest health advice.

This allows international students already enrolled in a Western Australian primary school, secondary school, university, college, technical college, or other further education course to enter WA from today.

This applies to those who are just starting their course and those who have been enrolled and studied onshore or offshore in previous years.

Students can either fly direct into Western Australia within the Australian Government-set cap, or indirectly by transiting through another state or territory.
