Transport, freight and logistics drivers

Guidance
Information for transport, freight and logistics drivers entering WA by road from interstate.

Entering WA

Transport, freight and logistics drivers need to complete a G2G Pass declaration to enter WA. Transport, freight and logistics drivers from medium, high, and extreme risk jurisdictions may only enter Western Australia if approved, either individually or as part of a class. 

At present, all transport, freight and logistics drivers from medium, high, and extreme risk jurisdictions are approved to enter Western Australia under a class approval, subject to such driver complying with relevant directions.

Testing requirements

Transport, freight and logistics drivers who have been in a high or extreme risk jurisdiction in the last 14 days must show proof of having had a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test within the last 72 hours to enter WA.

Transport, freight and logistics drivers from high or extreme risk jurisdictions who have undertaken a PCR test but who have not received their test result yet must also undertake a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) at the WA border before entering WA at Eucla or Kununurra.

Transport, freight and logistics drivers who have been in a very low, low, or medium risk jurisdiction and who have not undertaken a PCR test in the last 5 days before entering WA must present for testing at a COVID Clinic within 24 hours of entering Western Australia.

A transport, freight and logistics driver who remains in WA must also present for testing within 7 days of their previous PCR test until 14 days have elapsed since their entry into WA. 

You will not need to comply with the 24-hour or 7 day testing requirement if you:

  • leave WA before you would otherwise be required to present for testing or;
  • are directed to a quarantine centre or hospital or;
  • are required to quarantine or isolate.

A list of COVID clinics is available on the HealthyWA website (external link).   

You must carry evidence of each COVID-19 test that is undertaken and produce that as evidence for inspection on request by a relevant officer.

If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result or are contacted by WA Health advising you are a close contact of a positive case while in WA, you must:

  • immediately telephone 13 COVID (13 268 43) and tell the operator you have been diagnosed with COVID-19
  • isolate and follow directions in the same way as anyone else who receives a positive result in Western Australia.

While you are here

Transport, freight and logistics drivers, except those from a very low risk jurisdiction, must comply with the following:

  • must wear a mask when in public or in the same room with other people.
  • must stay in a suitable overnight accommodation, if resting outside of the vehicle. A suitable overnight accommodation means having your own room, and where you are not required to share bathrooms or other facilities;
  • must not allow anyone access to your vehicle, unless travelling with another transport, freight or logistics worker;
  • must keep a record of people you have had direct contact with (name, contact number, and the date, time and location of your direct contact).

A transport, freight and logistics driver, except from a very low risk jurisdiction, must not enter businesses or public indoor spaces unless:

  • it is part of the driver’s duties as a transport, freight and logistics driver;
  • to get food, beverage, fuel or other necessities, which can’t be delivered to the driver and;
  • to access goods or services for health or medical purposes.
