What are the current travel restrictions for Cairns?

Currently, Australia travel restrictions include travel to Cairns. Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew. Travelers who are not Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members need to apply for an exemption to enter Australia. Australia has enacted temporary travel restrictions for flights to Melbourne and Sydney due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases: Through July 14, International flights to Melbourne are being diverted to other Australian airports. Through July 17, the number of international passengers arriving to Sydney has been limited to 450 per day, and each flight is limited to 50 people. All travelers are required to quarantine for 14 days at the first point of entry. Quarantines take place in state-designated facilities and are free of charge, except in the Northern Territory and Queensland. Airline crew are subject to self-isolation until their next scheduled flight. Foreign nationals may transit through Australia if the connecting flight is within 72 hours of the arriving flight. They must either have a transit visa or be nationals of a visa-exempt country. Transit passengers don’t need to apply for an exemption to travel restrictions if they are booked to depart on a connecting flight from the same airport within eight hours and they are not going to leave the airport. Travelers who plan to leave the airport before boarding their connecting flight or who will be at the airport for longer than eight hours need to apply for a travel exemption here and will be subject to quarantine until their departing flight. Travelers from New Zealand and Pacific Islanders may not need a travel exemption. More information on transiting Australia is available here. Travelers planning to travel across Australian state borders should note that some Australian states also have domestic travel restrictions, border restrictions, and quarantine requirements in place. In the case of onward travel within Australia, travelers are advised to check in advance with their travel/accommodation provider. If you are planning to travel to Cairns at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.
