From 12:01am on Saturday 11 March, people travelling to Australia from China, including Hong Kong and Macau, will not be required to show evidence of a negative pre-departure test for COVID-19. See the Minister for Health and Aged Care press release for more information.
From this date, you do not need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test to meet Australia's travel requirements. Some countries, airlines and vessel operators may require a pre-departure test result at check-in before you can board your flight or ship. Check the entry requirements of the country you are travelling or transiting through, and your airline or vessel operator’s requirements.
Refer to the Australian Department of Health and Smartraveller website for more information on international travel and COVID-19.
