Travel into Australia

Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice for international travellers Australia’s borders are closed. The only people who can travel to Australia are: 

  • Australian citizens 
  • residents 
  • immediate family members 
  • travellers who have been in New Zealand for the previous 14 days. 

The cruise ship ban is in place until 17 December 2020, but this does not mean the ban will be lifted at that time. The Australian Health Principal Protection Committee reviews the ban regularly. People arriving in Australia may be quarantined for 14 days and might have to comply with other state and territory travel restrictions.
