Entry restrictions

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, a person recruited under the Government approved Seasonal Worker Program or Pacific Labour Scheme, a person who holds a Business Innovation and Investment (subclass 188) visa. Travelers who are not in an exempt category may request an individual exemption to Australia's travel restrictions using the Travel Exemption portal.

Entry requirements

Travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure. Travelers must complete the Australia Travel Declaration form at least 72 hours before your departure for Australia.

Quarantine requirements

Unless arriving on a quarantine-free flight from New Zealand, all travelers arriving in Australia, including Australian citizens, must quarantine for 14 days at a designated facility, such as a hotel in their port of arrival.​, at their own expense. For more information on quarantine rules in the Australian states, check the following websites: New South Wales, The Northern Territory, Western Australia.

Transiting rules

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 72 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 72 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.

All other info

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.
