Covid-19 – Other travel restrictions

Returning to Australia from international travel

If you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident arriving back in Australia you’ll be subject to the Australian Government’s mandatory quarantine period of 14 days at your first Australian destination.

You will be provided with suitable accommodation to stay in during this period.

However, you will not be permitted to travel domestically (including to your home) or continue on any domestic connections, until the 14 day mandatory quarantine period has been completed.

For more information visit the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Smart Traveller.

Public transport

The State Government will begin reinstating some of the public transport services recently withdrawn due to the coronavirus pandemic.

From Monday May 4, Transperth services will move from the current arrangement to one which represents 70 per cent of the normal weekday timetable, plus school services (route deviations and school specials).

The free orange school buses operated throughout regional Western Australia by School Bus Services will resume normal services on Wednesday April 29 (Monday is the ANZAC Day holiday and the Tuesday is a pupil-free day), as will all TransRegional services in WA country towns.

Details of the enhanced services are being finalised. It is anticipated they will be available on the Transperth website and app from 30 April.

For further information please visit the Transperth website

Shipping (including cruise ships)

Any non-Australians arriving at WA ports will be required to stay on-board the ship until arrangements have been made for private transport to the airport and a flight home. This direction is made under the Emergency Management Act.
