Coming to South Australia from interstate

There are no longer entry requirements for interstate travellers coming to South Australia. This includes essential travellers and cross-border community members.

You no longer need to complete an EntryCheck SA application or have a RAT test before arriving.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, you will not be allowed to enter South Australia until 7 days from the date of your first positive COVID-19 test has passed. The day the test is taken is day 0. Exemptions are in place for domestic violence arrivals.

All travellers to SA should download the mySA GOV app from Google Play or the App Store before travelling to South Australia. Anyone who arrives on a plane must use the COVID Safe Check-In to scan a QR code specific to the Adelaide Airport immediately after their arrival.
