Travel

Huge change to Australia’s border plans

Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations. Travel can be done by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, ship or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip.[1] Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements, as in the case of tourism.
The origin of the word “travel” is most likely lost to history. The term “travel” may originate from the Old French word travail, which means ‘work’.[2] According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first known use of the word travel was in the 14th century. It also states that the word comes from Middle English travailen, travelen (which means to torment, labor, strive, journey) and earlier from Old French travailler (which means to work strenuously, toil).

In English, people still occasionally use the words travail, which means struggle. According to Simon Winchester in his book The Best Travelers’ Tales (2004), the words travel and travail both share an even more ancient root: a Roman instrument of torture called the tripalium (in Latin it means “three stakes”, as in to impale). This link may reflect the extreme difficulty of travel in ancient times. Travel in modern times may or may not be much easier depending upon the destination. Travel to Mount Everest, the Amazon rainforest, extreme tourism, and adventure travel are more difficult forms of travel. Travel can also be more difficult depending on the method of travel, such as by bus, cruise ship, or even by bullock cart.[3]

Australia is set to make a major change to its border rules as the next groups of people allowed to enter the country are revealed.

More than 200,000 international students, skilled migrants and refugees will be allowed to enter Australia again in coming weeks, as the nation moves to its final phase of the reopening plan.

After double-dose vaccination rates ticked over 85 per cent for adults aged over 16 on Sunday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison is expected to formally announce a further easing of international border restrictions on Monday, putting Australia a step closer to pre-Covid normality.

Phase D of the national plan, agreed to by federal, state and territory leaders earlier this year, allows for international borders to reopen with a Covid-19 booster program in place.

It also allows vaccinated international travellers to enter the country without quarantine.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said reopening the borders would be a boost to economic recovery, helping to address labour market shortages and allowing businesses to grow with confidence.

“We want to allow skilled migrants to come back, as well as international students sooner rather than later,” Mr Frydenberg told Sky News.

“It’s the natural next step following the announcements we’ve already made around citizens and permanent residents coming back without the need for quarantine, we’ve got the bubble with Singapore, the natural next step is skilled workers and international students.

“Both skilled workers and international students play an essential role in our economy. We know international students are worth $40 billion, and we know there are work skill shortages about there, and skilled workers can play a role.

“Whether it’s in hospitality, construction, mining or agriculture across the broader economy. There is a need to bring back those skilled workers and help build our economy back stronger as we recover from Covid-19.”

The announcement comes ahead of an anticipated bumpy fortnight in parliament, with Coalition senators Gerard Rennick, Matt Canavan and Alex Antic set to cross the floor and support One Nation leader Pauline Hanson’s bill against vaccine mandates.

Senator Hanson has threatened to withhold support for all government legislation in the final sitting weeks of the year.

Senator Hanson said she had spoken to Mr Morrison, who had granted her approval to introduce her bill, and will allow his colleagues to cross the floor to support the bill.

The Prime Minister is expected to announce further details on the return of skilled migrants and international students later on Monday.
