Western Australia’s premier has cast doubt on the likelihood of allowing full interstate travel by Christmas, saying NSW could face months of restrictions.

The state’s tourism industry has called for a “no jab, no fly” coronavirus vaccination policy for all interstate arrivals to be implemented from December.

Tourism Council WA chief executive Evan Hall says it would promote safe and responsible travel and help the state move towards a new “COVID-norm”.

But Premier Mark McGowan has described it as premature given the situation in NSW, which on Monday recorded its third consecutive day of 800-plus new local cases.

“The thing about it is even if you’re vaccinated, you can transmit,” McGowan told reporters.
