New South Wales: NSW requires anyone arriving in NSW from Victoria after midnight on Friday to remain in their home until Wednesday. For NSW border residents who travel into regional Victoria, the five-day stay-at-home order only applies to those who have visited Greater Melbourne after midnight on Friday. There are no restrictions for travellers from other states and territories.

 

Queensland: Queensland has declared greater Melbourne a COVID-19 hotspot for 14 days.  People from the 36 local government areas in and around Melbourne are not allowed into QLD from 1am on Saturday 13.2.21.

 

Victoria: Victoria has declared areas of Western Australia’s south-west as an “orange zone”. This means that if you are travelling from this WA area, you must apply for a permit to enter Victoria, self-quarantine on arrival and remain in self-quarantine until you return a negative result. Everywhere else in Australia is considered a “green zone”, which means you must apply for a permit to enter Victoria. * See updated advice above regarding permits for aged care workers.
