The Australian Government recommends all Australian citizens and residents return to Australia and has banned all overseas travel from Australia at this time.
The Australian Government on 27 March 2020 advised that any person landing in Australia after midnight on Saturday 28 March 2020 would be forced to self-isolate in hotels or other accommodation for 14 days before returning home.
Since 20 March 2020, only Australian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate families have been permitted entry into Australia and have been required to self-isolate for 14 days. Certain travel exemptions apply to New Zealanders and Pacific Islanders. Read the advice issued by the Department of Home Affairs and the Department of Health.
Queensland state borders closed at midnight on Wednesday 25 March. Anyone entering the state after this time is subject to a mandatory 14-day isolation period. Further restrictions from Friday 3 April mean only Queensland residents and those considered exempt persons can enter the state.
On Friday 8 May 2020 the Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk released Queensland’s Roadmap to Easing COVID-19 restrictions. The roadmap outlines a staged approach to giving Queenslanders more freedom to travel, participate in more activities and hold more gatherings. We are currently in Stage 1 of this plan.
