Arrival caps limiting the number of Australians who can enter the country are set to increase, giving hope to Aussies who are stranded overseas.

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack on Wednesday announced he wants to lift the weekly cap from 4,000 to 6,000. 

He has written to state premiers telling them that the international arrival caps are increasing. 

‘We will increase the number of Australians coming into Sydney by 500 a week,’ he said.

‘As well 500 more will be coming into Queensland and I urge and encourage Annastacia Palaszczuk to look at the Gold Coast and Cairns.

‘Likewise WA is increasing its capacity by 500. SA about 360. I have just finished a phone call with Premier Steven Marshall and he wants to do as much as he can.’ 

However, he warned that some Australians will still be left stranded.

‘Not every Australian will be able to get home by Christmas, I have always said that.’
