COVID-19 Restrictions on International Arrivals
As part of Australia's efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, all international arrivals to Australia, including Australian citizens and permanent residents, must undertake 14-day mandatory quarantine in Government-managed hotel quarantine. In addition to mandatory quarantine, all travellers seeking to enter Australia must present a negative COVID-19 test certificate at pre-departure check-in or they will not be permitted to travel to Australia.
Non-Australian citizens and non-permanent residents with a valid visa seeking to travel to Australia require a border entry exemption to enter Australia. Exemption applications and processing are managed by the Department of Home Affairs.
Further information on travel restrictions and exemption applications can be found on the Department of Home Affairs website.
