Travel to Australia

From 19 April 2021, a New Zealand safe travel zone will be established. 

This means travellers from New Zealand will be able to enter WA without having to quarantine. 

The safe travel zone does not apply to New Zealand citizens who are outside New Zealand or who have not been in New Zealand for the last 14 days or more. To prohibit border hopping from other countries outside of Australia and New Zealand, currently arrivals, outside of Australia, entering New Zealand must also complete 14 days of quarantine similar to arrangements in place for international arrivals into Australia. 

Travellers entering WA via New Zealand must: 
  • complete a mandatory G2G PASS registration and declaration prior to travel 
  • on arrival at Perth Airport, complete a health screening 
  • scan your G2G PASS to exit the airport. 

All other normal entry requirements, for example immigration and biosecurity, apply. 

Green and red zone processing areas have been created at Perth Airports in Australia to ensure the separation of passengers arriving on ‘quarantine-free’ flights, from other passengers who are required to enter 14 days mandatory quarantine. 

If you travel on a quarantine-free flight, you will be guided through the green zone to complete all border clearance processes in the airport of arrival in Australia. 

For travellers not arriving from New Zealand, only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia. You will be required to self-isolate for 14 days in a city hotel when you arrive in WA. Transport arrangements from the airport will be made on your behalf by the State Government.

Travel from Australia

From 19 April 2021, travellers who have been in either Australia or New Zealand for 14 days or more can travel quarantine-free to New Zealand from Perth. This includes people who have spent all 14 days in Australia, or people who have travelled from New Zealand to Australia and are returning within 14 days. 

To travel quarantine-free you must meet the New Zealand Government’s health pre-conditions and all other normal entry requirements, like customs, immigration and biosecurity, apply.

There is a ban on most overseas travel, with few exceptions. To find out more, go to Smartraveller’s coronavirus (COVID-19) information. If you need to get home on compassionate grounds, our airline partners are here to help.


Do I need to wear a mask?

It is mandatory to wear a mask at Perth Airport. This includes in the car park, terminal buses, forecourts and terminals.

  • You need to bring your own mask to the airport.
  • On departure, please put on your mask when you exit your vehicle and throughout your journey, unless required for security screening or an applicable exemption.
  • On arrival into Perth, please keep your mask on after you disembark the aircraft until you have returned to your vehicle, or if you are required to quarantine, until you return to your quarantine accommodation. Don’t forget to let your driver know if you are required to quarantine as they will need to wear a mask as well.
  • You can still enjoy a coffee, drink or bite to eat provided you are seated and put your mask back on as soon as you’ve finished.
  • Children under the age of 12 are exempt.
