Queensland to reopen border sooner than expected

The State has brought the date of its border reopening forward to Monday, 13 December.

Queensland’s border will reopen to the rest of the country, including areas declared hotspots, from 1am on Monday, 13 December.

Interstate travellers and returning residents can enter the state by land or air and will not need to quarantine as long as they are fully vaccinated and provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken in the 72 hours prior to arriving in Queensland.

Arrivals from hot spots such as New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia will be required to undergo a second test five days after their arrival.

Unvaccinated travellers can only enter the state by plane and will be required to quarantine for 14 days at home or in a hotel. The same applies to international arrivals.

Vaccinated border resident can obtain a border pass which allows them to move freely across the border for a validity period of 14 days, without the need to undergo a PCR test.

Police checkpoints will remain in place at road crossings and airports to ensure arrivals meet entry criteria.
