Travel restrictions

Relevant information for professionals in the Mining, Energy and Resources industry considering work in Australia

Australia has strict border measures in place to protect the health of the Australian community. Very limited flights are currently available to and from Australia and you may not be able to travel at this time. Travel restrictions are subject to change. See: National Cabinet media statement.

For the most up to date information on current travel restrictions please check the Australian Department of Home Affairs Covid 19 website:

All travellers arriving in Australia, including Australian citizens, must quarantine for 14 days at a designated facility, such as a hotel in their port of arrival.​ See Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice for travellers. You may be required to pay for the costs of your quarantine.

To find out more about quarantine requirements, contact the relevant state or territory government health department.

IMPORTANT: You cannot come to Australia unless you are in an exempt category or you have been granted an individual exemption to the current travel restrictions.

The majority of travel exemption requests to come to Australia are finalised within 7 days, but some complex requests may take longer.
