NSW Premier Glady Berejiklian is prepared to revisit the "daily life" reason for residents to cross the border between her state and Victoria after the easing of restrictions in regional Victoria.
Service NSW reaffirmed recently the only way to enter the state presently was to get necessary goods or services; for care or other compassionate reasons; to attend work or education or to permanently move home into NSW.
"It does mean we can amend our orders to make everything consistent and it does provide further relief for the border communities," Ms Berejiklian said.
The Premier said she and the state's chief health officer Kerry Chant "would have more to say about it" on Wednesday.

Member for Benambra Bill Tilley is also pushing for swift action on the issue following regional Victoria's hard-fought battle to have restrictions eased.
"It is a breakthrough, but none of this has happened by magic," he said.
"The sheer sacrifice and discipline of business and our community have been key drivers in getting to this point.
"I want to thank everyone who has had the faith, trust, support and encouragement to tell me their story so that we could then tell the Victorian government what was really going on out here.
"Our next challenge is to get our Border crossing permits altered to falling in line with a cross-border lifestyle.
"We are already talking and lobbying the NSW government seeking changes.
"We really need the Labor Government to go back and look at the benchmark to shift to the last step in their plan.
"The idea that the earliest this is going to happen is November 23 and only if we get to zero new cases state-wide for 14 days is seemingly impossible."
Wodonga mayor Anna Speedie was pleased to see the further easing of restrictions.
"I'm particularly happy for our businesses and our community who have continued to do the right thing, and there is still some way to go," she said.
"But this is a very positive step and I encourage our people to continue to support local businesses and local people as we look towards recovery."
Mr Andrews said he had briefed the NSW Premier Gladys on Tuesday's announcement.
"In the first instance, that's to make sure that some of the concessions (made by NSW recently) ... are not put at risk," he said.
"Beyond that, we will continue to talk with them.
"The first issue was to make sure in opening up regional Victoria, we didn't get a situation where NSW suddenly said, 'Well, those ag workers we've got moving, some of the permits we've got, all of a sudden we're not comfortable with that'.
"I think it's fair to say in my discussion with Gladys that they're comfortable with the arrangements we've put in place."
