Restrictions tightened for entry to NSW from Victoria

At midnight, Tuesday 21 July, a new border zone along the Murray river was created and restrictions for entry into NSW from Victoria were tightened further. See the NSW Government announcement regarding the tightened restrictions.

Agriculture remains classed as a critical service and therefore individuals working in these industries undertaking agriculture and forestry services, including veterinarians, agricultural contractors and shearers, can apply for a permit to cross the NSW-Victorian border.

Permits issued up until the commencement date of the border zone expired at midnight on 21 July. If you remain eligible under the new rules you will need to apply for a new permit.

For more information see our border crossing information page or contact the Primary Industries Liaison Team at covidinfo@dpi.nsw.gov.au

The DPI COVID-19 webportal will be updated as information becomes available.
