Domestic travel – Tasmania

Current as of 29 September 2020, at 15:12 AEST

Coming to Tasmania

All travellers arriving in Tasmania need to apply for an electronic G2G or ‘Good to go’ PASS from They need a QR code to enter the state under the new system. People who were named essential travellers before the new system need to reapply through the G2G PASS.

All non-essential travellers arriving in Tasmania must enter quarantine for 14 days.

Tasmanian residents can quarantine in their home. Non-Tasmanian residents must quarantine in accommodation provided by the Government.

Anyone who quarantines at a hotel will be charged $2,800 per person — or a special family rate — except where there’s extreme hardship.

Non-Tasmanian residents — who are not classified as essential travellers — who have been in a high-risk location in the past 14 days won’t be able to enter Tasmania. These locations include the whole of Victoria and certain locations in Sydney. Those travellers will be turned back at their own expense.

For a list of high-risk locations, visit and search for ‘Current high-risk locations’.

Tasmanian residents who’ve been to a high-risk location — including families with children and fly-in, fly-out workers — will need to quarantine in government-designated accommodation.

People who’ve transited through an airport or seaport in a high-risk location — but not left the port — are not considered to have been in a high-risk location.

Essential travellers who’ve been to a high-risk location may not need to quarantine. However, they’ll need to comply with public health rules. They must get tested for COVID-19 on arrival, limit their movement and wear a face mask.

To find out if you qualify as an essential traveller, visit and search for ‘Essential travellers’.

Tasmanian fly-in fly-out or FIFO workers who work interstate in low-risk areas for at least 7 days can apply for essential traveller status.

They must apply as a Category 8 essential traveller under the Schedule of Specified Persons when they register for a G2G PASS. For more information, visit

All travellers are required to have a health check when they arrive in Tasmania. This includes symptom and temperature checks. This health screening is conducted at all Tasmanian airports and ports — including King and Flinders Islands. However, travellers can complete part of the symptom check online in the hour before they travel.

Anyone with symptoms will be asked to have a COVID-19 test and directed to quarantine at their destination — whether that’s their home or at another accommodation, including government-assigned accommodation — while they wait for their results.

The Spirit of Tasmania will not be available to travellers from SA, WA or the NT — only Tasmanians returning home or essential travellers.

Border restrictions will remain in place in Tasmania until at least 1 December 2020.

Travel within Tasmania

King Island and Flinders Islands residents can travel to mainland Tasmania without quarantining on their return as long as they don’t travel via mainland Australia.

While Tasmanians are still being encouraged to limit non-essential travel, restrictions on accommodation have eased.
