South Australia will begin to ease its border restrictions with Victoria as the average number of new daily COVID-19 cases continues to drop over the border.

However, all arrivals from Victoria will still be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in SA.

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens says that the relaxation of restrictions is set to be “significant”.

People will now be allowed to cross the border if they are relocating to South Australia without the need for an exemption.

Students will also be permitted to travel into the state at the end of the school term or university semester, opening the door to family reunions ahead of Christmas.

Meanwhile those in cross-border communities will no longer need to have a reason for travelling from Victoria to South Australia.

The 70km cross-border bubble will still apply along the state’s eastern boundary.

People transiting through the state between Victoria and Western Australia will also be allowed to do so without the need for an exemption.

Victoria recorded just one new case of COVID-19 on Tuesday, its seventh day in a row of single-digit case numbers.
