Domestic travel – Tasmania

Current as of 10 July 2020, at 15:00 AEST

The Tasmanian border remains closed, with only Tasmanian residents and essential travellers allowed to enter the state.

Everyone who arrives in Tasmania — including Tasmanian residents — will need to quarantine for 14 days. Tasmanian residents can do this in their primary residence in the state; non-residents must quarantine in accommodation provided by the Tasmanian Government.

Anyone who has spent time in Victoria in the last 14 days is not allowed to enter Tasmania, except for Tasmanian residents and essential travellers.

  • Tasmanian residents who have spent time in Victoria in the 14 days will need to quarantine in government-provided accommodation, including families with children and fly-in, fly-out workers.
  • Essential travellers will need to apply to enter Tasmania, limit their movements and wear a face mask.
  • People who have travelled through a Victorian airport or port without spending time in Victoria can enter, but existing quarantine requirements are still in place.

Essential travellers, including health workers, freight delivery staff and emergency services are exempt from this requirement. Fly-in fly-out workers may leave quarantine before they complete 14 days if they plan to return interstate to their employment.

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

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

Tasmania won't change its border restrictions until at least 31 July 2020, subject to public health advice.
