Good to Go – new process for travel to King Island

The Tasmanian State Government have launched a new website and app, Good 2 Go (G2G), to be used for pre-approval of entry into Tasmania, including King Island. This includes residents, essential travellers and those travelling for compassionate or medical reasons.

Everyone arriving on King Island from mainland Australia – excluding mainland Tasmania – will need to have completed an application through the G2G website or app and have received approval before their arrival. Travellers are advised to submit their application at least 3 days before their intended date of travel and will need to have a printed copy of their approval or the ability to display that approval on a smartphone or tablet at the airport. This approval will be in the form of a scannable QR code, an example of which is below:

Travellers are advised to check current travel requirements and restrictions on the Tasmanian coronavirus website before starting their application on the G2G site or app. Applications can only be completed online and require a personal email address and details of either your driver’s licence, passport, Medicare card or Tasmanian Personal Information Card. Any residents who require help accessing the online application can contact KIRDO on 03 6462 1778 or by email and arrange a time to get assistance.

Any King Island resident who is not able to present this approval upon arrival at the airport will likely be transferred to the state-run accommodation facility – Boomerang-by-the-Sea – until such time as they can provide evidence of approval. Non-King Island residents may either be transferred to the state-run accommodation facility or asked to return to the airport they travelled from.

Residents who are able to isolate at home are reminded that they will need to arrange their own transport home. The Community Car is not able to transport travellers from the airport to a place of quarantine, whether at home or at the state-run facility.
