Tasmania has opened its borders to NSW for the first time in more than seven months.

The change, which came into effect at 12.01am on Friday, removes the need for people travelling from NSW to quarantine.

Tasmania is now open to all states and territories bar Victoria, having dropped border restrictions with other jurisdictions on October 26.

Premier Peter Gutwein hopes to lift border restrictions with Victoria on December 1, with the mainland state going six days without any new COVID-19 cases.

Earlier this week he said a shift from mandatory hotel quarantine to home quarantine was on the cards for Victorian arrivals.

Tasmania was the first jurisdiction in Australia to close its borders and has gone almost 90 days without a case.
