Updates for anyone travelling to or from Queensland

Entering Queensland from a hotspot

The Australian Capital Territory, the Jervis Bay Territory, New South Wales, and Victoria are declared hotspots.

Anyone who has been to a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days or since their identified start date (whichever is shorter) will not be allowed to enter Queensland, unless they are a Queensland resident or have an exemption. Anyone allowed to enter will need to complete 14 days mandatory quarantine. Find out where you will have to quarantine.

New South Wales Border Zone

These local government areas are no longer part of the restricted border zone:

  • Glen Innes Severn Shire (since 1am AEST Friday 24 September 2021)
  • Lismore City (since 1am AEST Friday 24 September 2021)
  • Brewarrina Shire Council (since 1am AEST Friday 24 September 2021)

This means that only the non-restricted border zone rules apply to residents of these LGAs.

Since 1am AEST 22 September 2021, Byron Shire and Tweed Shire are part of the restricted border zone as well as declared interstate places of concern.
