Pending no further outbreaks and based on the latest public health advice, Victoria is expected to move to the ‘low risk’ category from 12.01am Saturday, February 20. See the controlled interstate border page for up to date information. 

Under the ‘low risk’ category, travel is permitted into WA, subject to the following strict conditions:

  • complete a G2G Pass declaration, stipulating they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms, which jurisdictions the traveller has been in over the previous 14 days;
  • 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 on arrival;
  • 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); and
  • 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;

All other jurisdictions except Victoria are considered ‘very low risk’ and are permitted to enter WA without COVID-19 testing or self-quarantine requirements.

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