Visas and the border

Travel restrictions

A travel ban is in place that prevents all non-Australian citizens and non-residents from entering Australia.

People exempt from the travel ban include immediate family members of Australian citizens and permanent residents including spouses, minor dependents, legal guardians and de facto partners. After arriving in Australia, all travellers are required to complete 14 days quarantine.

Information for temporary visa holders

Visa holders who wish to remain in Australia beyond the expiry date of their current visa need to apply for a further visa. Visa holders should explore their visa options to find a new visa that suits their circumstances and check whether they can apply for it.
