I'm not sure if the Australia government would let you in at the moment if you are on a student visa. There is talk of letting international students come in, but nothing is sure as yet.

I've been in quarantine for three days so far and I'm still coping.
I'm in Singapore at the moment, supposed to be studying in Sydney, NSW. Hope i can go back before 2nd semester starts in third week of August. I am also hoping that the Australian government gets a progress on that international student exemption.

I see. I am quarantined in Sydney at the moment.

Even if they let international students come in, the students will be subject to a 14 day mandatory quarantine in a hotel though. This is unavoidable.

For those waiting on refunds, I promised I'd give an update.

Today, I received the full refund of points (which were extended to 30 June 2021) and taxes (refunded to credit card).
Flights were cancelled on 20 March and refunded on 29 May.
Total time taken = 10 weeks.

I hope this information helps other people who are waiting.

I am still waiting for my SQ refund (almost 8 wks now). Surprisingly, Scoot processed the refunds quicker for cancellations made on the same date as I received the refunds after 6 wks.

SIA has changed two Sydney flights SQ231/222 (A380v2) and SQ221/232 (A380v3) to 3-class A350s during July 2020.

Seems a waste of time to change those if they were going to cancel them anyway (July schedule still TBA), so perhaps we will see increased frequencies to and from Sydney in July?

Currently the airline is operating pax flights only on SQ211/232 (B77W) on this route three times per week.

I believe Australia and Singapore are currently in discussions to restart essential and student travel, so that could be the reason. However, there have been no official confirmations or timelines as of yet.
