Cruise ship passengers

If you are entering WA via cruise ship, guidelines are in place to keep you and our community safe from COVID-19.

WA has adopted the Eastern Seaboard and Western Australia protocols, which provide cruise ships with policy guidelines about how to manage COVID-19 restrictions and outbreaks on board.

Please follow all guidelines put in place by your cruise ship and continue to engage in COVID-19 safe behaviour, both onboard and during shore excursions.

WA encourages all visitors on cruise ships to take a RAT prior to shore excursions and follow recommendations on mask wearing in WA to help protect local communities.

Visiting remote Aboriginal communities

There are more than 200 remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia across the Midwest, Gascoyne, Pilbara, Goldfields and Kimberley regions. Restrictions on entering remote Aboriginal communities have now lifted, however, communities may continue to enforce their own restrictions for entry.

If you plan on visiting a remote Aboriginal community, you need to check with the community before leaving, to learn if there’s any restrictions on entry and make sure you have necessary approval before travelling. This is important if you are wanting to use amenities or to access food or fuel.

Contact the visitor centre for the region for the latest travel information.

Leaving WA

Check ahead for any restrictions at your destination location before you leave WA. Visit the SmartTraveller website for the latest travel advice.
