South Australia's border restrictions with Victoria will be removed.

The change will take effect from the morning of Tuesday, 1 December, with no requirement for travellers from Victoria to undertake 14 days of quarantine.

Premier Steven Marshall said today that Victoria has faced many challenges over the past few months, but has now managed to get on top of the virus.

"I acknowledge how difficult this period has been for many people – particularly those who have been separated from their loved ones.

"The reopening of the border will see families reunited and it will help stimulate our economy, boost tourism and create jobs."

The Premier also announced that the restrictions on standing while consuming alcohol in licenced venues will be relaxed soon, with SA Health working extremely hard to have a contact-tracing check-in system up and running.

"Certain businesses will need to use the new system. This includes pubs, clubs, restaurants, cafes and other licensed venues," said Mr Marshall.

"Once it's available and businesses have implemented it, standing hospitality will be allowed to resume immediately."

Other restrictions are expected to be lifted after the Transition Committee meets next Tuesday 17 November.
