Queensland Travel Declaration
Effective immediately, the Queensland Government has advised that all travellers arriving into Queensland are required to complete a Queensland Travel Declaration form up to 3 days before arriving in Queensland. There are two types of declarations, a Queensland Travel Declaration and a Queensland Border Declaration Pass.
Travellers must complete the correct declaration for their situation before travelling to Queensland; information on what declaration to complete can be found here.
If a traveller’s conditions change or they need to update travel details, then a new declaration will need to be completed. Queensland residents must also complete a declaration if they are returning home from interstate or New Zealand.
