COVID-19: Tasmanian border restrictions

05 Jun 2020

All non-essential travellers arriving in Tasmania will be required to enter quarantine for 14 days.

Eligible Tasmanian residents must complete their 14 days of quarantine at their residence in Tasmania provided that they:

  • are able to provide evidence of residency;
  • are not symptomatic of COVID-19; and
  • have not been overseas within 14 days of travelling to Tasmania, or who have disembarked from a cruise ship within 14 days of travelling to Tasmania.

In these instances, arrivals must quarantine in a government managed accommodation facility for 14-days. Non-residents arriving in Tasmania must also complete a quarantine period at government provided accommodation.

Essential Travellers that meet strict criteria and eligible maritime crew will be exempt from the 14 day quarantine requirement but must still comply with listed quarantine conditions. See Conditions for Essential Travellers for more.

This Tasmanian quarantine requirement is in addition to the Australian Government requirement for all returning international travellers or people who have disembarked from a cruise ship in the last 14 days to enter quarantine at their point of arrival into Australia.
