COVID-19: Border crossing information


Last updated: 21 Jul 2021 8:44am

Travelling to and from NSW

All states and territories now have requirements for travellers from NSW. You can find further information on leaving NSW to go interstate. Please check the relevant state's border controls as you may be required to complete either a declaration or apply for a permit ahead of your travel date, or upon your return travel into NSW. Some areas of NSW have been identified as high risk areas and residents, or recent travellers to these areas, may not be able to cross certain borders.

Travellers into NSW, including returning NSW residents, are now required to complete a travel declaration if returning from Queensland, Northern Territory, Victoria or Western Australia.

The situation is changing frequently, so travellers are advised to regularly check travel requirements.
