Travel Advice 20/03/20

In response to COVID-19, the Australian Government has announced that from 9pm AEDT 20 March 2020 only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia.

All travellers to Australia are required to self-isolate for 14 days, either at home or in a hotel.

The Australian Government continues to advise Australians already overseas who wish to return to Australia to do so as soon as possible by commercial means.

The Australian Government also continues to advise Australians to not travel overseas at this time due to the risks to their health and the high likelihood of major travel disruptions. This applies to all destinations.
