NSW requires anyone arriving in NSW from Victoria after midnight on Friday to remain in their home until Wednesday.

For NSW border residents who travel into regional Victoria, the five-day stay-at-home order only applies to those who have visited Greater Melbourne after midnight on Friday.

There are no restrictions for travellers from other states and territories.


Queensland has declared greater Melbourne a COVID-19 hotspot for 14 days.

Queensland Government declares Melbourne a COVID-19 hotspot.

People from the 36 local government areas in and around Melbourne aren’t allowed into Queensland from 1:00am on Saturday.

There are also 34 local government areas around Perth in Western Australia that are still considered hotspots by the Queensland Government. 

However, the designation is due to end from Sunday.



Victoria has declared areas of Western Australia’s south-west as an “orange zone”. 

This means you must apply for a permit to enter Victoria, self-quarantine on arrival and remain in self-quarantine until you return a negative result.

Everywhere else in Australia is considered a “green zone”, which means you must apply for a permit to enter Victoria.


The ACT will introduce travel restrictions with Victoria from Saturday.

Any ACT residents who return home before midnight on Friday do not have to quarantine.

ACT residents who return home from on Saturday must notify ACT Health and enter into self-quarantine until Wednesday night in line with the Victorian lockdown.

All other states and territories can travel to the ACT, however you may have to declare your travel or quarantine in some cases. 


Tasmania has declared the entire state of Victoria as a high-risk state. The decision will be reviewed if the Victorian lockdown lifts as planned.

All travellers from Victoria to Tasmania will have to self-isolate for 14 days, at their home or in hotel quarantine from Saturday.

There are also 12 high-risk locations in Sydney. Travellers who have spent time in these locations in the past two weeks are not permitted to enter Tasmania unless approved as an essential traveller.

The rest of Australia, including everywhere else in NSW, is considered “low-risk” and travellers don’t need to quarantine.


Western Australia

The WA has introduced a 72-hour hard border with Victoria 6:00pm on Friday.

WA Premier Mark McGowan announces 72-hour hard border with Victoria.

Victorian arrivals at Perth airport on Friday were tested at the airport before going into their 14 days of self-quarantine. 

Only exempt travellers from Victoria will be allowed into the state.

WA is due to begin quarantine-free travel with New South Wales from Tuesday, provided there are no further outbreaks there.

This means all Australian jurisdictions, except Victoria, will be classified as “very-low-risk”. This means travellers won’t have to quarantine.

South Australia

From midnight on Friday, entry to South Australia from Victoria will be restricted. 

Essential workers, such as truck drivers, will still be allowed.

Local travel from cross-border communities will be allowed for essential purposes such as shopping, medical treatment and caregiving.

Any South Australians in Victoria will be expected to conform to the lock-down restrictions in that state.

Travellers arriving from the Western Australian locations of Peel, Perth and South West must self-quarantine. 

They must also submit to COVID-19 testing on days 1, 5 and 12 of quarantine. They can be released from quarantine after getting written advice of a negative COVD-19 test result.

Northern Territory

The Northern Territory Government has declared Greater Melbourne a coronavirus hotspot.

Any travellers from the city arriving in the Territory from 10:45am on Friday will be directed into 14 days mandatory supervised quarantine.

There are no other active declared hotspots in other Australian states and territories.

Victorian coronavirus outbreak expected to worsen as state enters start of five-day lockdown

Victorian authorities are expecting an outbreak of the UK strain of coronavirus from a quarantine hotel to grow, as the state enters the first day of a snap lockdown called on Friday in a bid to dampen community transmission.

Premier Daniel Andrews said the outbreak, which started with a family of three at Melbourne Airport’s Holiday Inn, was “moving at a velocity that has not been seen anywhere in our country over the course of these last 12 months”.

The outbreak remained at 13 cases on Friday night, but health authorities believe there are more cases in the community yet to be detected, which is the rationale for plunging the state into five days of stage 4 restrictions in a bid to provide a “circuit-breaker”.

The harsh restrictions which dominated Melbourne’s second-wave lockdown are now in force across the whole state, meaning Victorians cannot leave their homes except for the four main reasons of shopping for essential supplies, care and caregiving, limited exercise and essential work.

When Victorians do step outside their homes, a mask must be worn at all times, including indoor and outdoor settings.AS IT HAPPENED: Catch up on the coronavirus news from February 12.

Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said while the snap lockdown would come at a financial and emotional cost to the community, an alternative scenario where the outbreak got out of control would be “devastating”.

Business groups were dismayed by the announcement and have increased advocacy for a national framework to try to avoid scenarios where sudden, short lockdowns continued to hurt businesses.

Exposure sites linked to the Holiday Inn outbreak include the entirety of Melbourne Airport Terminal 4 between 4:45am and 2:00pm on Tuesday, when authorities estimate up to 5,000 people passed through the terminal.

On Friday night, the Victorian Government announced a freeze on international passenger flights which would begin from today, excluding flights already in transit.

The Premier also suggested recent hotel quarantine infection control breaches around Australia had highlighted the difficulties of containing the UK strain and changes may be needed.

“This is not the 2020 virus, this is different, this is something very, very different,” he said.

Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania have essentially shut their borders to Victoria as a result of the outbreak, while Queensland and the Northern Territory have listed Greater Melbourne as a hotspot.

There is no border closure with New South Wales, but anyone there who has been in Victoria since January 29 is being asked to isolate at home and follow the five-day lockdown rules that apply in Victoria.
