Border Requirements

Guidelines to follow when travelling to and within Australia

When travelling to and within Australia, following the border requirements and quarantine directions is of utmost importance. These rules vary by state, province and city when travelling domestically, and by country when returning from international travel.

All travellers will need to follow the Government's border requirements and quarantine directions.

A quarantine period or border closures may apply depending on the state or country you have visited or returned home to and border entry forms and further conditions can be required for entry.

Check out the latest state border conditions for Australia and New Zealand below on the links provided. It is your responsibility to ensure you have checked the relevant Government advice in the links provided.

  • New Zealand

    Please note the New Zealand Government currently advises New Zealanders not to travel overseas. Updates can be found on the SafeTravel website here.

    If you are overseas and returning or recently returned home to New Zealand following the quarantine guidelines is of utmost importance.

    These include:

    • Only New Zealand citizens and residents with valid travel conditions can enter New Zealand. There are a small number of limited exceptions. The most up to date information can be found here.
    • Travellers – or their travel agents – will need to use the Managed Isolation Allocation System before booking flights to New Zealand. The system generates a voucher once the traveller’s place in managed isolation is confirmed, and the traveller will then need to present their voucher to airlines in order to board their flight. See more information here.

    • You will be placed in a hotel under what is called managed isolation.
    • Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 will be taken to a different hotel for quarantine.
    • You will need to stay in the hotel for at least 14 days.
    • There will be strict conditions around access to the outdoors and interactions with others; this will not change as the New Zealand alert levels go up or down.
    • More details can be found here.
