Interstate travel

As of 12.01am on November 14, 2020, WA transitioned to a controlled interstate border, whereby travel from ‘very low risk’ and 'low risk' states and territories is permitted, with conditions on arrival including declarations, temperature tests and possible COVID-19 testing.

'Very low risk' jurisdictions are those which have had no community cases for more than 28 days. This currently includes the ACT, Northern Territory, Tasmania and South Australia. 

Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland are currently classified as a 'low risk' States.  Low risk jurisdictions are those which have had less than five community cases on a 14-day rolling average. This means travel from these states into Western Australia is permitted, with 14 days of self-quarantine and COVID-19 testing.

More information, including which jurisdictions are 'very low risk', 'low risk' or 'medium risk' can be found on wa.gov.au.

All interstate travellers will still need to complete a G2G Pass declaration:
