Changes to Western Australia's border arrangements

Changes to Western Australia's border arrangements

As of Saturday, 14 November, WA transitioned to a safe and sensible controlled border arrangement based on the latest public health advice.

WA’s existing hard border arrangements and current exemption requirements for travel have been removed, allowing Australians to travel into and around WA, subject to conditions of entry. Remote Aboriginal community restrictions and Residential Aged Care Facilities Restrictions within WA are still in place, as well as a modified 2 square metre rule.

On further advice from the WA Chief Health Officer, South Australia has moved from the ‘very low risk’ category to a ‘medium risk’ category. This is the highest rating of any other state or territory. Given this emerging situation, WA’s border with South Australia has been strengthened. No one will be allowed into WA if they have been in South Australia in the previous 14 days, unless they meet new exemption requirements. Details here

Restricted Travel in remote Aboriginal Communities (COVID-19)


  • The coronavirus (COVID-19) has the potential to do great harm to the Kimberley’s 221 remote Aboriginal communities.
  • Aboriginal people living in remote areas are more at risk of serious illness from the coronavirus than other people.
  • If the coronavirus gets into an Aboriginal community, it is likely to spread quickly and make residents very sick.
  • To help protect our Aboriginal communities, there are strict travel restrictions in place.
  • Fines of up to $50,000 may apply to anyone who breaches the restrictions.
  • Only some Aboriginal communities are excluded from the restrictions.
