Queensland’s border barriers are to come down from 1am this Saturday, 15 January and border passes will no longer be required.
With the State expected to reach its 90% full vaccination target next week, the border barricades will be coming down earlier than planned in order to free up police resources.
Speaking at a press conference earlier today, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said that anyone travelling domestically into Queensland, whether by road or air, would no longer be expected to have a border pass or show proof of a negative rapid antigen test.
In terms of international travel, the Premier said current arrangements will remain in place for the time being.
Other restrictions, such as allowing only fully vaccinated people into hospitality venues and events, will also remain in place.
