A repatriation flight of Australians stranded overseas due to COVID-19 will touch down in Canberra on November 26.
Details relating to the flight, including where the flight will arrive from and how many passengers on board are still to be worked out following talks between the ACT and federal government.
Next week's flight will be the first of two repatriation flights to arrive in the ACT by Christmas.
An ACT government spokesman said final preparations for the repatriation flight were being undertaken.
"The ACT and Commonwealth governments have worked collaboratively to put in place processes to review the ACT's hotel quarantine program's systems and procedures in accordance with nationally agreed guidelines," the spokesman said.
"Now that this review process is in place, the ACT government is working towards accepting a government-facilitated flights of returning Australians on November 26."
The ACT has already received two repatriation flights of stranded citizens this year, one coming from India and the other from Nepal.
It's estimated 25,000 Australians are still stuck overseas due to the impacts of COVID-19 on overseas travel.
However, strict limits on the number of Australians that can enter hotel quarantine at any one time have prevented larger amounts of citizens back home.
