Queensland Travel Declaration

From 1am AEST Saturday 19 June 2021 you must complete a declaration to enter Queensland from anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.

To reduce the risk of COVID-19 in Queensland and manage outbreaks, the Queensland Government has put in place declaration requirements for all travel into Queensland from interstate and New Zealand (on quarantine free flights).

Queensland has two types of declarations, a Queensland Travel Declaration and a Queensland Border Declaration Pass.

You must complete the right declaration for your situation before you travel to enter Queensland. If conditions change or you need to update your travel details, you’ll need to complete a new declaration with updated details. Queensland residents must also complete a declaration if they are returning home from interstate or New Zealand.

Find out more about these declarations and travelling to Queensland.
