NSW ENTRY DECLARATION FORM REQUIRED ONLY ONCE EVERY 72 HOURS

The frequency with which NSW entry declarations must be completed by someone travelling from Queensland has been extended from once every 24 hours to once every 72 hours.

The latest advice from Service NSW says the form must be completed “each time you enter NSW, but not more than once every 72 hours”.

You must complete a NSW entry declaration form if you:

  • are entering NSW on or after 12:01am on 30 June 2021, and
  • have been in Queensland in the previous 14 days.

You must complete the form:

  • either within the 24 hour period before you enter NSW or on entry
  • whether you cross the border by any means including air, road or rail
  • each time you enter NSW, but not more than once every 72 hours.

Note: For free help in your language call 13 14 50 (Translating and Interpreting Service).

What you need

  • your name, email and phone number (mobile preferred)
  • your residential address
  • each address you have stayed at in Queensland on or after 12:01am on 30 June 2021
  • your intended travel dates and the addresses in NSW where you'll be staying
  • the number of dependants under 16 that are travelling with you
  • the date you're intending to leave NSW (if applicable)

Note: If you do not have an email address or a smart phone, a trusted relative can help you complete the form if needed.

How to complete

  1. Select the 'NSW entry form (Queensland)' button.
  2. Enter the required details.
  3. Read and confirm your declaration.
  4. Select 'Submit'. 

You'll be sent a copy of your declaration to the email address you provided. Keep it with you at all times while you're travelling in NSW. You'll need to produce it if requested by an enforcement officer.

You also need to carry any supporting evidence associated with your travel, at all times.

Before you enter, or if you are in NSW, special rules apply if you have been in a place of high concern.
