Border pass required to enter Queensland from NSW

Anyone entering Queensland who has been in New South Wales will be required to complete a border declaration pass from 1am, Sunday, December 20.

In response to an unfolding COVID-19 cluster in Sydney, anyone who has been anywhere in New South Wales since December 11 will be required to complete the pass before entering the state.

All Queensland travellers returning from New South Wales will also be required to complete the online pass.

All motorists crossing the state border from New South Wales into Queensland will need to have a valid border declaration pass which should be displayed on their windscreen when crossing the border.

Police will be conducting random intercepts of vehicles at border crossings and meeting flights coming into Queensland to ensure compliance.

Providing false information on a border declaration pass or entering Queensland unlawfully could result in a $4,003 fine.

People who have been in a hotspot either in the last 14 days or since it was identified, will only be able to enter Queensland if they are a returning Queensland resident or required to enter for a limited range of essential reasons.

Queensland residents returning to Queensland from a hotspot must quarantine for 14 days on entering Queensland in government arranged accommodation at their own expense.

The updated Queensland border declaration pass will be available online on Saturday from 8pm at and is valid for 14 days.
