Removal of application process for domestic travellers entering SA

Effective immediately all people entering South Australia from interstate will no longer be required to fill in a cross border form.

Therefore border check points into the state via road will no longer be monitored by SA Police. Those personnel will be brought back to their normal roles over the next few days during a transition period.

State Coordinator and Commissioner of Police Grant Stevens said police will no longer process arrivals or pull over vehicles as they enter the state, effective immediately.

“With South Australian borders now open to all states we want to make it as easy as possible for visitors, families and those returning to our state.” he said.

Arrivals at the airport will still be greeted by South Australian Police employees for the time being and asked the following questions:

  • Have you been overseas in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone who is suspected of or confirmed as being COVID-19 positive?
  • Are you experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms including cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, fever, acute unexplained loss of smell or altered sense of taste?

If a person entering South Australia has not been in a Low Community Transmission Zone (SA, WA, NT, QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS or NZ) for the previous 14 days they will be required to follow other restrictions as international arrivals. International arrivals are still required to go through the current screening process and spend 14 days in hotel quarantine.

“I want to thank every South Australian for doing their part in our fight

against COVID-19.”
