Australia Travel Declarations | What you need to know

The Government has introduced Australia Travel Declarations to better manage contact tracing and quarantine plans. 

All international travellers should complete an Australia Travel Declaration at least 72 hours before departing for Australia.

This includes:

Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents

People who are automatically exempt from the travel restrictions

People who have been granted a travel exemption

The declarations collect each traveller’s:

Contact details in Australia

Flight details

Quarantine requirements

Health status

Here’s what businesses and individual travellers should know.

Making an Australia Travel Declaration

Travellers should:

1. Create an account and submit a declaration. The Government has authorised SITA to collect Australia Travel Declarations on their behalf.

2. Receive a confirmation email and present it before boarding and on arrival into Australia.

Travellers should note:

Each declaration is valid for one flight and for one traveller only – if traveling with family or in a group, each traveller should make individual declarations.

Transits through Australia will require an Australia Travel Declaration.

Care should be taken as an Australia Travel Declaration cannot be updated once submitted.

There is no cost to make an Australia Travel Declaration.

If you do not complete the declaration, you may not be able to board your flight or you may experience delays on arrival.

Travellers must identify if they have visited any COVID-19 outbreak locations in New Zealand – check the New Zealand Ministry of Health website for locations of concern.
