You can enter Queensland from elsewhere in Australia without restrictions.
From 1am AEST Saturday 15 January 2022, domestic border restrictions for people entering from interstate are no longer in place.
See what you need to do to enter Queensland if you have been in a place outside of Australia in the last 14 days immediately before your arrival in Queensland.
Hotspots are places in Australian states or territories other than Queensland, or in safe travel zone countries where health officials have found a lot of people with COVID-19, or places that are at risk of a lot of COVID-19 infections.
Border zone areas are Local Government Areas along the Queensland/New South Wales border zone that may have increased restrictions in place due to the increased risk of COVID-19 transmission in the community. These border zone areas will either be restricted or non-restricted.
It is important to note that the restricted or non-restriction status of a border zone does not impact the hotspot status of the area.
