Important Information for Travellers to New South Wales / Australia

Entry to Australia

Only Australian citizens and returning permanent residents and their immediate family members are permitted to enter Australia without an exemption until further notice.

  • Travellers who meet exemption criteria or have a compassionate or compelling reason to enter Australia can apply to the Australian authorities for an exemption.
  • For information on the exemption categories, application form and documentation required, see the Department of Home Affairs website.
  • The Department of Home Affairs is experiencing high levels of demand for exemptions and there is no guarantee of either the timing of a decision or the outcome. You should make your application at least four weeks but not more than three months in advance of travel and provide full supporting documentation.

Quarantine Arrangements

All international travellers entering Australia need to undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at a designated facility (for example a hotel) at their port of arrival. This is arranged by individual State and Territory governments.

The State of New South Wales has introduced charges for mandatory quarantine and other requirements (testing and screening) for all arriving travellers. Please see all relevant details here, including details on quarantine charges on the NSW Government website: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/what-you-can-and-cant-do-under-rules/quarantine.
