Fewer Incoming Flights and all arrivals to pay for Quarantine

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that flights returning Australian residents from overseas will be slashed in half, and passengers will have to pay for their hotel quarantine, under changes agreed to at National Cabinet.

"It is a reduction of over 4,000 people coming each week and that is spread across those ports of entry, and that will take effect from Monday."

The Australian Border Force has confirmed that the actual number of international arrivals from June 7 to July 7 was 28,069. That is an average of 936 per day.
This could reduce to between 360 and 470 per day, depending on the calculation.

With all arrivals to pay for Mandatory Quarantine, Queensland is already charging for this, and Western Australia has also recently applied for the ability to charge for this.

This change means that all states will now charge the individuals, possibly at near the same rates as Queensland.

Quote:
International Arrivals into Queensland will have to pay their own Quarantine costs from the 1st July 2020.

A single traveller will be charged $2,800, which includes $910 for food.
A couple would pay $3,710, while a family of four would pay $4,620.

Far out.

I thought our fortnightly groceries at Coles for $240 was a lot, but $910 for quarantine food prices are just insane.


Just give us a new loaf of bread every day and a tub of Vegemite.

As it was just announced, each State is probably working out how to start it.

When Qld announced their charges, it was very fast. This announcement at least gives some warning of what will happen, before long.

The Western Australia government website is now saying:

Effective from Friday, 17 July, all international arrivals will be required to pay for their 14 days of hotel quarantine.

I wonder if they provide restaurant meals in Queensland, at those prices.
$65 per day per adult to cover three meals. ($32.50 per child).

NSW to charge $3000 for hotel quarantine. $5k for a family of 2 adults +2 kids. Kids under 5 free. The NSW taxpayers will still be foot the bill for security, transport and logistics.

The NSW Government have stated this for the timing:

The NSW Government will begin to charge international travellers for their hotel quarantine accommodation from 12:01am Saturday, 18 July.

Travellers who purchased their flights before 11:59pm 12 July AEST will be excluded from quarantine fees, but will still be required to quarantine in government arranged accommodation at no charge.

Cost:
$3,000 for one adult
Additional adults: $1,000 each
Additional children: $500 each
Child under 3: no additional cost

NSW is slightly more expensive than Queensland.

The NSW government has made it clear that "The quarantine fee will reduce the financial burden of COVID-19 on NSW taxpayers."
