No state or territory has met a federal government deadline to outline their plans for the return of international students in 2021 by the end of November, with three states yet to provide any indication of when they will be ready.

The NSW government, along with the ACT and NT governments, are expected to submit their plans to the Morrison government this week, while Victoria and SA will also miss the deadline but are working on their proposals.

Federal Education Minister Dan Tehan said on Monday that WA, Queensland and Tasmania were the only states yet to provide a timeline for their plans.

"I wrote to all states and territories asking them to submit their plan for international student arrivals by the end of November," Mr Tehan said.

  I visited a United Club during the pandemic and saw how the airline is re-imagining the airport lounge as it slowly welcomes back travellers United Airlines is re-examining its airport lounges, called United Clubs, during the pandemic as the priorities of its top passengers have shifted towards health and safety. Only 10 lounges are open across a network of 33 airports as daily departures are slashed and international travel remains scarce but more are likely to be opened in the coming months. We visited the United Club at Newark Liberty International Airport for a closer look at how the lounge is surviving the pandemic with fewer passengers and a reduced offering.

"Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania are yet to advise a timeline for any plan.

"We understand NSW, NT and ACT intend to submit a plan this week. Vic and SA have advised they will not submit a plan this week but are working on plans."

Mr Tehan said the letter, sent to each government on November 6, stated that the plans had to be signed off the Premiers and their chief health officers, and needed to demonstrate how international students could be brought in safely after Christmas.

But Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on Monday that universities were preparing the state's proposal, as she responded to questions about whether the government had submitted its plans.

"My understanding is that the universities are in discussions. They are putting a proposal to the federal government, but we have made it very clear that they would have to hotel quarantine and we've also made it very clear that we are actually watching how that happens in other states," Ms Palaszczuk said.

A spokesman for WA Premier Mark McGowan confirmed the state had "no set date for the resumption of international students."

"We'll continue to take advice from the Chief Health Officer and, as the Premier has said, we won't be working to artificial deadlines," the spokesman said.

"StudyPerth, along with the five universities, continues to work on a proposal for the return of international students when it is safe to do so."

The Tasmanian government has been contacted for comment.

Monday's deadline coincided with the arrival of 63 international students in Darwin on a chartered flight from Singapore, as part of pilot program with Charles Darwin University.

Brett Sutton has been caught throwing a complete hissy fit

  Brett Sutton has been caught throwing a complete hissy fit Victoria's chief medical officer Dr Brett Sutton went into a meltdown after learning he had been cut out of the crucial decision to implement the state's disastrous hotel quarantine program. The hissy fit was exposed after Dr Sutton was made to hand over a series of emails he had failed to cough-up during the public inquiry into Victoria's COVID-19 hotel quarantine efforts.The inquiry came to a close last month without ascertaining who actually made the decision to employ the private security guards that caused Victoria's second deadly wave of COVID-19.

The flight, carrying students from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam and Indonesia, are first cohort of international students to arrive in Australia since borders shut in March.

Mr Tehan said the government's priority remained using the limited hotel quarantine places to bring home more than 30,000 Australians stranded overseas.

"The NT pilot is a small pilot that will help us design a safe way to return international students, once we have prioritised returning Australians and the time is right," Mr Tehan said.

"NT does not have a ‘cap' on international arrivals so the international students arriving through the pilot program are not displacing returning Australian citizens."

Financial data released by the Morrison government last month revealed Australian universities collected $10 billion in international student fees in 2019, amounting to 27 per cent of their total operating revenue.
