COVID-19 border update

As of today, the South Australian borders are open to vaccinated people and new processes are in place to protect South Australia. If you are vaccinated, you can travel to SA but you must follow entry conditions based on your risk level. If you are not vaccinated, you will need to apply for an exemption to enter SA.

To enter SA, you must now apply through EntryCheck SA (including returning South Australian residents). Depending on your EntryCheck SA assessment you may need to use HealthCheck SA to guide you through your testing and quarantine requirements.

From today, you can also upload your digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate to the mySA Gov app to show your vaccination status when required.
