Border between WA and others states
- Travel is now allowed into WA from most states and territories in Australia.
Western Australia will introduce a hard border with Queensland following the evolving COVID-19 situation and outbreak.
Based on the latest updated advice from the WA Chief Health Officer, Queensland will transition from a ‘low risk’ State to a ‘medium risk’ State under WA’s controlled interstate border, from 12.01am tomorrow, Tuesday, March 30 2021.
Travel from Queensland into WA will no longer be permitted, unless you are an exempt traveller. This also applies to anyone who may have been in Queensland since March 27 and has not completed 14 days in a ‘very low risk’ State or Territory.
The exemption list is limited to:
- certain senior Government officials;
- certain active military personnel;
- a member of the Commonwealth Parliament;
- a person carrying out functions under a law of the Commonwealth;
- a person responsible for transport freight or logistics; and
- anyone who is given approval by State Emergency Coordinator or an authorised officer.
The final category includes compassionate reasons - including those Western Australians that may have travelled to Queensland recently and need to return to WA.
- Exempt travellers arriving into WA from 12.01am Tuesday, 30 March 2021 must:
- self-quarantine in a suitable premise for 14 days;
- present for an initial COVID-19 test on arrival at Perth Airport;
- present for a COVID-19 test if any symptoms develop during quarantine;
- present for a COVID-19 test on day 11 after arrival in WA (if still in WA).
