We share up-to-date information and advice about COVID-19 for our international education sector.

Get vaccinated

The COVID-19 vaccine reduces the risk of you and your workers getting seriously ill with COVID-19.

The more Victorians who get vaccinated through the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, the faster we can move towards reopening our state’s businesses and industry.

If you’re yet to be vaccinated, book your appointment today. If have any questions or concerns you can talk to a GP, or pharmacist.

All Victorians are encouraged where possible to book their vaccination at or by phoning the Coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398.

Visit for more information on Victoria’s vaccination centres, including locations and opening hours.

Victoria's current restriction levels

Victoria has moved to COVIDSafe Settings. For updates on current restrictions, please visit the Victorian Government’s coronavirus website.

Support for Victorian businesses

Government assistance is available for Victorian businesses impacted by COVID-19.
