Australia's state of Victoria is closing its borders to New South Wales (NSW) and Australian Capital Territory (ACT) on Sunday amid a rise in COVID-19 cases in NSW, the state's Department of Health said.

"The Acting Chief Health Officer has declared that all of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory will become a red zone under Victoria’s travel permit system at 11:59pm Sunday 11 July. This means the Victorian border is effectively closed to New South Wales and the ACT," the Department of Health said in a statement on Facebook.

Starting on midnight, people residing in NSW and ACT will not be allowed to enter Victoria, with some exceptions. Victoria residents will be allowed to enter the state if they have a valid permit. Those allowed to return to Victoria from red zones are required to get tested and immediately quarantine for 14 days. People attempting to enter Victoria with no permit will be fined a sum of AU$4,957 (US$3,710) and made to quarantine until they can be sent back.

In the past 24 hours, NSW saw 77 locally acquired new cases of COVID-19 and five from overseas. The state has a total of 514 active cases. In comparison, Victoria has no new acquired cases and 20 active.

Japan to Begin Accepting Requests for Vaccination Passports From 26 July, Official Says

Japan's municipalities will begin accepting applications for coronavirus vaccination passports starting 26 July, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato said on Sunday.

"Those who need to relax anti-pandemic measures while entering another country from Japan will be able to apply [for a vaccination paspsort] with a local administration from 26 July," Kato told NHK, adding that the vaccination passport will feature information about an administered vaccine, as well as the vaccination date and location.

Nevertheless, those who have not been vaccinated should not face any discrimination over that, the official said.

"The issue of using vaccination passports within the country will be resolved separately," Kato added.

On 2 June, it was reported that seven EU countries — Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Croatia and Poland — began using the Digital COVID Certificate for travelling within the bloc. The system launched in full force on 1 July.
