What I need to do before I travel
Before you travel to Australia, you should complete the Australia Travel Declaration.
You may also need:
- a valid visa to enter Australia
- to submit an exemption to Australia’s travel restrictions
- authority to enter Australian states or territories.
Some of these documents must be presented at the airport when you check-in and when you arrive in Australia.
Travellers to Australia must complete all relevant declarations and forms so we can arrange quarantine, if needed and undertake contact tracing, in the event of a positive COVID-19 case.
If you are an Australian citizen who wishes to return home on a government facilitated flight, please contact Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
