South Australia opening Victorian border from 1 December

South Australia will remove its border restrictions to Victorians from midnight on 1 December.

According to SA Premier Steven Marshall the decision to take down the border was made following an assessment of the COVID-19 situation in VIC.

"This will be a huge relief to people as we head into December," Marshall said.

"We've always said we don't want to keep the restrictions in place for one day longer than we need to, but we have had to have this border arrangement in place, and it has been our first line of defence and kept South Australia safe and strong."

"Victoria has done extraordinarily well, and that means Australia is in a much better position."

It comes as Western Australia is opening its borders to most of the country at midnight tonight, excluding those travelling from VIC or New South Wales who will have to complete two weeks of quarantine on arrival.

Premier Marshall has flagged the further easing of restrictions within SA which will be announced next Tuesday following a Transition Committee meeting.

"We will be making advice which will ease those restrictions across a range of venues and activities," he said.

"Once that is done, it is very likely that those restrictions will be in place for some time."
