Fully vaccinated NSW residents from orange zones will be able to travel to Victoria without getting tested or isolating from Monday, Victoria's Health Minister Martin Foley has announced.
The majority of regional NSW, including Albury, is currently an orange zone.
The changes will come into effect on October 19.
Fully vaccinated NSW residents living in red zones will now be able to enter Victoria without having to quarantine for 14 days.
Residents will still need to have two COVID-19 tests, one before and one after entering the state, to prove they are negative before getting out into the Victorian community.
People entering from red zones who are not fully vaccinated must still quarantine for 14 days.
People who are fully vaccinated coming from orange zones will no longer be required to get tested or isolate, he said no requirements will apply to them other than permits.
People who are not fully vaccinated must still isolate and get tested.
