South Australia changes border restrictions for travellers from NSW

People travelling to South Australia from regional New South Wales are now allowed to enter the state, but its border wall remains up for certain “prohibited locations”.

Under the changes to South Australia’s restrictions, travellers from regional NSW will require a COVID-19 test on day one, day five and day 12 from when they arrive.

However, there is no requirement for them to isolate while awaiting test results unless they have symptoms.

The South Australian government yesterday announced a hard border would remain in place for those from Greater Sydney, Wollongong and the Central Coast, unless they are an essential traveller or an exempt person, labelling them “prohibited locations”.

Travellers from the Greater Brisbane Area are still subject to 14 days of self-quarantine upon arrival in South Australia and must submit to a COVID-19 test on days one, five and 12.

The South Australian government has also warned people travelling to the state from Victoria to check whether they have recently visited one of the COVID-19 public exposure sites listed by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and follow the required directions.

Earlier this week, the ACT eased border restrictions for some parts of NSW, while Victoria reclassified regional NSW, including the Central Coast, as an ‘orange zone’ as part of its new ‘traffic light’ permit system for domestic travel.

The ACT also followed the Northern Territory’s lead in no longer classifying Greater Brisbane as a COVID hotspot, following a three-day snap lockdown of the region by the Queensland government.
