Update on ACT travel requirements from Victoria

ACT Health will lift the stay-at-home requirement at 11.59pm tonight for anyone in the ACT who has travelled from Victoria. This means that people currently in the ACT and people travelling to the ACT from Victoria will no longer be subject to the stay-at-home requirements.

People seeking to travel from Victoria into the ACT must first ensure that they follow the Victorian Government’s public health directions.  If permitted to travel, people will need to complete an online declaration form on the COVID-19 website 24 hours prior to arrival. This form will be available from 4.00pm today (10 June). These requirements will remain in place for at least one week, until 11.59pm Thursday 17 June 2021.

Ahead of the long weekend, ACT Health advises Canberrans to carefully consider their need to travel to Victoria.  If you choose to travel, you must also abide by all public health directions in place in Victoria. You should also be prepared to change your travel plans at short notice if the situation changes.

New exposure locations
The list of COVID-19 exposure locations in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland has increased overnight.

People in the ACT who have been in these jurisdictions in the last 14 days should check the COVID-19 Areas of Concern information on the ACT’s COVID-19 website to see if they have visited one of these close or casual exposure locations during the dates and times specified, and follow the relevant health directions.

Anyone who has travelled outside of the ACT recently should continue to check the COVID-19 website for updated exposure locations.

With the long weekend, we also remind Canberrans of COVID safe travel advice:

  • Avoid COVID-19 affected areas
  • Be prepared to cancel or amend your plans on short notice
  • Stay up to date with the latest travel advice
  • Be aware of restrictions in your destination and when you return to the ACT
  • Be vigilant for COVID-19 symptoms upon your return home and get tested.
