Travel to the island from states and territories that have on-going COVID-19 community transmission (the “Living with COVID” states and territories)
Travel to the island from states and territories which have community transmission of COVID-19 remains restricted to returning residents and essential workers. If you are a fully vaccinated returning resident or an essential worker, you will be tested upon arrival and be required to self-isolate at home until you return a negative test result. This may take up to 7 days. If you are an unvaccinated or partially vaccinated returning resident or essential worker, you will be required to self-isolate at home for 14 days or until released by NIHRACS.
The states and territories to which this requirement applies is NSW, Victoria and the ACT and will remain until 1 December.
Travel to the island from 1 December From 1 December the island will allow visitors from states and territories where there is on-going community transmission and have reached 80% vaccination. Proof of vaccination will be required to be attached to the entry pass application. Unvaccinated travellers will be required to undergo 14 days selfisolation on the island or until released by NIHRACS. Fully vaccinated travellers will not be required to undergo self-isolation. This applies to travellers from NSW, Victoria, and the ACT.
Travel from states and territories that do not have any community transmission will remain unchanged.
This means that both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers from these states and territories will be able to travel to the island without having to undergo self-isolation. This applies to Queensland, Western Australia, Tasmania, Northern Territory and South Australia.
It is expected that these requirements will be in place until all states and territories reach the stage of being fully open under their respective roadmaps for living with COVID.
