Update: New restrictions apply in Victoria

From 5pm on 31 December the following restrictions will be in place in Victoria:

The limit of people gathering in the home will be reduced to 15 from 30.

Face masks must be worn when in indoor spaces (other than private residences), on public transport, and in commercial passenger vehicles, apart from when eating or drinking, unless a lawful reason not to wear one applies. Masks are strongly recommended in the home if people other than your immediate household are present.

We all need to be COVID Safe – don’t go into the city unless you have a booking, wear a mask indoors, practice good hand hygiene and if you are sick – stay at home.

Update: Victorian Travel Permit System

Victoria is establishing a permit system for all domestic travel into Victoria.

From 5:59pm on 11 January, you will need to apply for a permit to enter Victoria from anywhere in Australia. 

New South Wales/Victorian border communities will continue to have exceptions and will be able to use local residence identification to cross the border.
