COVID-19 advice for international arrivals to Queensland
If you are coming to Queensland from overseas you will need to complete 14 days of mandatory quarantine at a government nominated hotel at your own expense in accordance with the Quarantine for International Arrivals Direction.

- Have only been in safe travel zone country for 14 days prior to arrival to Queensland and travelled on a quarantine free flight, or
- Are maritime crew who is not required to quarantine under the Protocol for maritime crew members joining or signing off a vessel in Queensland approved by the Chief Health Officer, or

Once you have completed quarantine, you can travel within Australia in line with state and territory domestic travel restrictions.
Before entering Queensland
You must apply for and receive a Queensland International Arrivals Registration before entering Queensland unless you are entering from New Zealand on a quarantine-free flight. International Arrivals from New Zealand on quarantine-free flights are required to complete a Queensland Travel Declaration prior to entering Queensland.
The information collected in the registration process includes your contact details and who you are travelling with. This information helps to determine suitable quarantine arrangements and allows us to contact you to provide additional information about your obligations in entering Queensland and other COVID-19 related purposes.
Children under the age of 18 travelling with their parent or guardian can be included in the parent or guardian’s registration and do not require an individual Queensland International Arrivals Registration. Unaccompanied minors will need to be met by a parent or guardian at the airport who will enter 14 days of government-arranged quarantine with them unless an exemption from quarantine has been granted.
On arrival to Queensland you will be met by an emergency officer and served with a Quarantine Direction Notice and transport to your government arranged accommodation will be provided.
Please present your QR Code to an Emergency Officer at the border check point upon arrival in Queensland or as requested at the government arranged quarantine accommodation.
