If you've been in South Australia in the last 14 days and you're wanting to travel into NSW, you're required to complete a NSW entry declaration form. You can do this:

  • within the 24 hour period before entering NSW, or
  • when you enter NSW.

You'll need to complete an entry declaration form each time you enter NSW, but not more than one per calendar day. 

Keep a copy of your declaration with you at all times while you're travelling as you'll need to produce it if requested by an enforcement officer.

You also need to carry any supporting evidence associated with your travel, at all times.


Travellers entering NSW who have been in SA in the last 14 days must complete the NSW entry declaration form.

Please note that travellers who have been in a South Australian area of concern in the last 14 days will not be permitted to enter NSW, unless:

  • they are returning NSW residents, in which case they must self-isolate for 14 days on their arrival in NSW
  • they are non-NSW residents transiting through NSW, in which case they must do so by the most direct, practicable route.

All travellers must ensure they're adhering to the current health restrictions within South Australia. Stay up to date by visiting:

What you need

  • your name, email and phone number (mobile preferred)
  • your residential address
  • recent travel details, including address(es) you've stayed at within the last 14 days
  • the reason for your travel

  • any supporting evidence associated with your travel.

Note: Each dependant aged 16 or older needs to complete their own declaration form.

  2. Enter your details.
