Queensland will transition from a ‘medium risk’ state to a ‘low risk’ state from 12.01am Wednesday, April 7, 2021, following the latest public health advice.

Western Australia's controlled interstate border will be safely adjusted to permit travel from or via Queensland under strict conditions:

  • self-quarantine for 14 days in a suitable premise;
  • present for a COVID-19 test on day 11;
  • all Perth Airport arrivals to undergo a health screening and temperature test;
  • be prepared to take a COVID-19 test at the airport COVID clinic, if deemed necessary by a health clinician (voluntary asymptomatic testing available for all airport arrivals);
  • land arrivals to be met at the border checkpoint, for a health screening and to have their G2G Pass declaration checked before proceeding to self-quarantine premise;
  • complete a G2G Pass declaration, stipulating they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms and which jurisdictions the traveller has been in over the previous 14 days.

Travellers from States and Territories considered 'low risk' jurisdictions are permitted to enter WA without an exemption but subject to strict conditions including COVID-19 testing and self-quarantine.

WA’s Chief Health Officer will continue to monitor and review border controls to determine if any further adjustments can be made in the future.

WA's border arrangements are enacted under the Emergency Management Act and failure to follow these directions will be enforceable by law, with penalties ranging from $1,000 infringements to up to $50,000 fines for individuals.
