SINGAPORE: Australia is in the"final stages" of talks with Singapore to set up a new travel arrangement between the countries which could be established"within the next week or so", Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Friday (Oct 22) morning.

"The first step (is to) bring Australians home," Mr Morrison said.The country will then welcome those with student visas, business travellers, skilled migrants and international visitors, in that order, he said.Mr Morrison added that Australia may welcome international visitors"before the end of the year" but that the country would not rush its reopening, saying that the aim was to"open safely so we can remain safely open". headtopics.com
