Monday 04, Jan 2021

Following the recent cases of COVID-19 in Sydney, the South Australian Government has imposed restrictions on travellers from New South Wales effective from 12:01am 1 January 2021.

Unless stated otherwise, anyone who has been in NSW in the preceding 14 days will be prohibited from entry into South Australia.

Exceptions to this include Essential Travellers, people escaping domestic violence, persons whom normally reside in South Australia, those relocating to South Australia and travellers who are transiting in/through NSW.

Travellers via car from the Low Community Transmission Zones are permitted to travel through NSW to enter South Australia providing they do not stop in Greater Sydney, wear a face mask for the entirety of the time they come into contact with the public and cannot maintain physical distance during their journey. They must also use the most direct route, only stopping for respite and essential purposes (such as for fuel).

Travellers via plane from a low community transmission zone are permitted to transit through Sydney Airport for no longer than 2 hours and must wear a face mask for the entirety of the time they are in transit (this includes on the plane).
