- Undertake home quarantine for 14 days
Direct international arrivals into Queensland will have to complete 14 days quarantine in Government-nominated facility.
International arrivals who arrive via another state or territory will have to quarantine in a Government-nominated facility until 14 days have passed since they arrived into Australia.
At 80% of Queensland’s eligible population fully vaccinated EXPECTED ON DECEMBER 17
- Travellers from an interstate hotspot can arrive by road or air
- They must be fully vaccinated

Those arriving via other states and territories won’t need to quarantine if they are:
- Fully vaccinated
- Have undertaken at least 14 days (subject to AHPPC review) of quarantine under the direction of another state or territory at home or in a government-nominated facility.
Those who don’t meet the criteria to arrive via another state or territory will need to apply for a border pass and undertake up to 14 days (subject to review by AHPPC) quarantine in a government-nominated facility.
It is important for businesses to know, at 80% vaccination coverage, there will not be government financial assistance available in the event of increased restrictions or lockdowns.

- No entry restrictions or quarantine for vaccinated arrivals from interstate or overseas
- Unvaccinated travellers will need to apply for a border pass, or enter within the international arrivals cap, and undertake up to 14 days (subject to review by AHPPC) quarantine.
