Non-Queenslanders excited by the lifting of travel restrictions from 12.01pm tomorrow (10 July) still need to bear in mind that they will have to complete a Queensland Border Declaration Pass before entering the state.
There are a number of requirements that need to be met for travellers wishing to enter Queensland from tomorrow, and these can be found at the Queensland Health website. Some of the requirements include that travellers must have filled in the aforementioned Queensland Border Declaration Pass, and they must present for a COVID-19 test if they develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within 14 days of entering Queensland.
Travellers who have been in a COVID-19 hotspot in the previous 14 days will not be permitted to enter Queensland except under special circumstances outlined by the Queensland Chief Health Officer on the Queensland Health website.
There are specific rules regarding travellers from Victoria, and those who have passed through Victoria, and these are outlined on the Queensland Government website. According to the Queensland Government, all current COVID-19 hotspots are located in Victoria… and currently all of Victoria is a hotspot.
And don’t think you’ll just be able to sneak across the border a little bit. The Cameron Corner Store, for example, will only be able to be accessed by Queenslanders or by other travellers who have competed a Queensland Border Declaration Pass, and the border into Queensland from NSW and South Australia is physically closed.
