From 12.01am, Friday 5 November, 2021 travellers from medium, high and extreme risk jurisdictions will need to be fully vaccinated. From 12.01am, Monday 15 November, 2021, travellers from low risk jurisdictions will need to be fully vaccinated.

People not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, such as those under the age of 12 or have recognised medical reasons for not receiving the vaccine, are exempt from this requirement.

The recognised COVID-19 vaccines are those authorised by the Therapeutic Goods Administration and includes the Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines.

People entering WA and are subject to the new requirement will need to ensure they have their proof of vaccination ready as part of their G2G Pass application.
