After months of lockdown Queensland reopened its borders at 1am today, Monday 13 December. Fully vaccinated people will be able to travel to Queensland without quarantining under certain conditions. This is the Queensland roadmap to easing restrictions:
- Travellers from interstate hotspots can arrive by road or air.
- They must be fully vaccinated.
- They must provide a negative COVID test in the previous 72 hours. The test needs to be a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, not a rapid antigen test.
- No quarantine is required for the fully vaccinated.
- Must be fully vaccinated and return a negative COVID test within 72 hours of departure. The test needs to be a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, not a rapid antigen test.
- They will be required to get a test on arrival.
- They must go into home (subject to conditions) or hotel quarantine for 14 days.
- Travellers no longer will have to wait two weeks to be considered fully vaccinated. One week is enough.
- All travellers from hotspots must get a test on Day Five after their arrival. The test needs to be a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, not a rapid antigen test.
- Vaccinated border zone residents will be able to move freely across the border without the need for a PCR test.
- Border passes will be required, and they will be valid for 14 days.
