PLANNING ON TRAVELLING TO AUSTRALIA? STAGE AND SCREEN HAS ALL THE DEETS.



Travel partner to the film industry, Stage and Screen, always has a hand on the pulse of the latest travel updates and can give you detailed information on all travel requirements and restrictions.

When travelling to Australia the following restrictions and rules apply:

  • there is a 6000 cap on inbound travellers, once the cap is exceeded even ticketed passengers can be cancelled
  • the Australian Border Force only gives 48 hours notice to airlines
  • quarantine hotels are on a rolling roster so very difficult to predetermine accommodation until 48-24 hours out from travel
  • very few quarantine hotels have balconies
  • think of quarantine more as a hospital stay, not a hotel – to manage expectations
  • NSW quarantine regimen is run by New South Wales (NSW) Department of Health and the police commissioner’s office
  • the Victorian border has re-opened with NSW on Nov 23, there is no quarantine required for travellers to Victoria
  • Victorians and people arriving in Victoria not able to travel to states other than NSW

As processes and restrictions are constantly changing and vary from state to state you can check here for the latest government updates.
