Travellers from New Zealand can enter WA from 12.01am, Monday, 19 April 2021, without quarantine requirements, but still subject to strict conditions, pending no further outbreaks. A G2G PASS can only be completed after this time.
When planning to travel to WA from New Zealand, it is important to know WA has a controlled border arrangement. All travellers must complete a G2G PASS registration and declaration to enter WA.
It is important to be aware of the controlled border status for New Zealand and any Australian state or territory you may be visiting before WA (including transiting through airports). To find out what the current categories for each jurisdiction are visit the Controlled Border page.
The controlled border is based on public health advice and determines the entry and quarantine conditions in WA. There are three categories as part of the arrangement.
Very low risk
Allows travellers to enter WA without quarantine. Strict conditions still apply, including a health screening upon arrival.
Quarantine and testing conditions apply. A health screening is also required upon arrival.
Travellers are not permitted to enter WA unless exempt. If exempt, quarantine and testing conditions apply.
Before you travel
Complete a mandatory G2G PASS registration and declaration prior to travel. You need to scan your G2G PASS to exit Perth Airport, following a health screening.
When travelling into WA, ensure you have a face mask, as they are mandatory on aircraft and at airports in WA unless you are under 12 or exempt.
As New Zealand is now part of WA’s controlled border arrangement, you do not need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test prior to departure, like other international arrivals.
When you arrive
If on arrival to WA, you are directed to quarantine, you must wear a mask when travelling to your quarantine premises, and when leaving your quarantine premises to present for COVID-19 testing. You will be directed to quarantine if you arrive in WA while NZ is considered ‘low risk’ or ‘medium risk’, as part of the controlled border arrangement.
To enable effective contact tracing, mandatory contact registers have been put in place for most businesses and venues in WA. The WA Government has developed SafeWA, which is a digital contact register system and is a free, efficient and safe way to check-in.
Alternatively, you can provide your details manually using a mandatory contact register form, which is provided by businesses and venues.
You can travel to New Zealand depending on the controlled border restrictions at the time of your travel.
However, you should note border arrangements are constantly reviewed based on the health situation in each state and territory.
