Mandatory contact register

Most businesses in Western Australia need to collect visitors’ contact details for contact tracing purposes. Visitors include patrons, staff, contractors and volunteers. The details collected will include contact telephone number, location, date and arrival time.

Unaccompanied children under 16 are encouraged but don’t need to register. Adults accompanying children under 16 are encouraged to register for them.

If you attend or use a beauty and personal care service — including hairdressers, barbers, nail salons, tattoo parlours, spa and massage parlours — you must provide your contact details.

Business owners can use their preferred collection method if they collect the necessary details. However, the WA Government recommends that businesses use the SafeWA app to register visitors’ contact details.

Businesses that use their own QR code for registration must also display the SafeWA QR code. Visitors can then choose their preferred QR code registration platform.

Businesses and visitors can download the SafeWA app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store. For more information, visit and click on ‘SafeWA: Online contact register’.
