AUSTRALIA (June 30, 2021) – COVID-19: State borders closed, entry requirements updated


Australian states have recently imposed their own internal entry restrictions and quarantine policies in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 variants.

Key Points:

  • Travelers should plan to arrive in the capital city of the state in which they intend to spend the most time.
  • Travelers arriving in a state other than their final destination may have to undergo a two-week quarantine upon entering the country and then an additional two-week quarantine once they travel to their final destination state.
  • More information on entry requirements and quarantine policies for each state is found here.

BAL Analysis: Each state has their own entry requirements, and conditions may change with little to no notice. Travelers are encouraged to plan travel carefully and arrive in the state in which they will spend the most time. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
