Update on travel restrictions

The Public Information Unit (PIU) have now released more detail about the restrictions in place regarding travel into Tasmania from Victoria and other mainland Australia states and territories. A summary of these border changes are available on the “Roadmap to Recovery” page, here.

The government provided-accommodation on King Island remains Boomerang by the Sea. This accommodation will be paid for by the government – no direct costs will be incurred by the individual(s) in quarantine.

In some exceptional circumstances, King Island residents may be able to secure an exemption from quarantine in state controlled accommodation on compassionate or medical grounds and instead complete their 14 days quarantine at home. Complete the online application form, available here. If you travel before your application has been approved, you will be required to quarantine in state controlled accommodation until your application is determined.

Other essential travellers must complete the online application form for permission to travel to King Island and/or exemption from the 14 days’ quarantine, available here
