Australia's reopening its borders to vaccinated international students, business visa holders and refugees from Wednesday next week. 

In this country, the Government's approved visas for a thousand international tertiary students, but they won't start arriving until March. 

Australian correspondent Donna Demaio told Kate Hawkesby Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the move's a major milestone in Australia's pathway back. 

“He says allowing foreign visa holders to enter the country is that further stepping of international travel, of course, but also supporting the economy.” 

Donna Demaio said the international education sector's worth about 36-billion dollars to Australia.
