Removal of Cross Border Travel application process for domestic travellers entering South Australia – effective 16 December 2020

State Coordinator and Commissioner of Police Grant Stevens announced on Wednesday, 16 December 2020 that effective immediately, people entering South Australia from interstate will no longer be required to fill in a cross border form.

Consequently, border checkpoints into South Australia by road will no longer be monitored by South Australia Police and travel arrangements revert to those in place before March 2020.

Arrivals at the Adelaide Airport will continue to be met by South Australia Police for the time being and will be asked the following questions:

  • Have you been overseas in the past 14 days?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone who is suspected of or confirmed as being COVID-19 positive?
  • Are you experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms including cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, fever, acute unexplained loss of smell or altered sense of taste?

Only overseas travellers are now required to complete a Cross Border Travel Registration.

However, the interstate border arrangements may continue to change in light of emerging clusters of infection. Companies with interstate FIFO/DIDO interests are strongly encouraged to continue monitoring these interstate developments.

Further information on these changes is available on the South Australia Police website.

Thank you again for your continued support in keeping South Australia safe while maintaining business continuity in your essential industries during this challenging period.
