Covid-19 Travel Restrictions

by | Mar 1, 2020 | Migration

The COVID-19 travel restrictions have been extended to travellers from Iran.

The Australian Department of Home Affairs has updated its travel restriction advice on its website.

In addition to the restrictions on travel from mainland China, travel from Iran has also been included in the restriction from 1 March 2020.

Foreign nationals (excluding permanent residents of Australia) who are in Iran on or after 1 March 2020, will not be allowed to enter Australia for 14 days, from the time they have left or transited through Iran.

The restrictions on travellers arriving from any part of mainland China were extended last week until 7 March 2020.

The travel restrictions do not apply to the following:

  • Australian citizens
  • permanent residents
  • New Zealand citizens reside in Australia
  • immediate family members of Australian citizens and permanent residents including spouses, minor dependants and legal guardians
  • diplomats

Limited exemptions are available for Year 11 and 12 students who remain in China due to Australian travel restrictions (apart from those from Hubei Province) have been offered a strict pathway to resume their studies in recognition of the importance of the final two years of school.

All travellers arriving from these countries will be required to self-isolate for 14 days from the time they left mainland China.
