International arrivals

All international travellers must meet all Commonwealth entry requirements, including declaring their vaccination status and completing a digital passenger declaration.

When you arrive in Victoria

All international travellers — and international aircrew and maritime workers — arriving in Victoria, regardless of vaccination status:

  • are strongly recommended to have a rapid antigen test or PCR test within 24 hours of arriving in Australia — they do not need to self-quarantine while waiting for their results
  • must have a PCR or a rapid antigen test if they develop COVID-19 symptoms within 7 days of arriving in Australia
    • If they have a PCR test, self-quarantine until they receive a negative result. If they test positive on a rapid antigen test, they must report their result to the Victorian Government and follow the Checklist for COVID cases.
  • must comply with all COVIDSafe settings in place, such as wearing masks when needed
  • may transit directly to another state or territory following arrival in Victoria
