International students will be able to return to NSW under a state government pilot plan which involves them spending their Covid quarantine period in purpose-built accommodation.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said on Thursday 250 international students would be able to come to Sydney each fortnight from mid-year.
They will spend their quarantine period in purpose-built student accommodation.
The arrival of these students will be in addition to the returning Australians arriving at Sydney Airport each week amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The plan has been submitted to the federal government for review.
