Are there quarantine requirements regarding students and staff returning from high risk areas?
Australia’s borders are now closed. Only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia.
If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you and your immediate family members can return to Australia.
Changes from 11.59pm Saturday 28 March
From 11:59pm on Saturday 28 March 2020, all travellers arriving in Australia via air or seaports must undergo 14 days of isolation in the city of their arrival.
At overseas airports, Australian Border Force liaison officers will work with airlines to identify travellers who should not board flights.
The Australian Government will provide accommodation for the quarantine period.
If your final destination is in a different state or territory, you must still complete your quarantine in the state or territory you arrived in, before returning home.
States and territories will enforce these requirements with support from the Australian Government. This includes the Australian Defence Force and the Australian Border Force, if needed.
