BREAKING: Queensland will RE-OPEN at 1am on 13 December as we move towards the 80% vaccination milestone earlier than expected.
Fully vaccinated travellers can arrive from interstate hotspots by road or air WITHOUT quarantine, but you must test negative to COVID-19 in the previous 72 hours.
All arrivals, regardless of vaccination status, must get another COVID-19 test on day 5 after they arrive in Queensland.
People arriving in Queensland from hotspots who are NOT fully vaccinated must arrive by air and hotel quarantine for 14 days.
International arrivals must be fully vaccinated, return a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of departure, and will have to do 14 days of home or hotel quarantine.
Fully vaccinated border zone residents with a border pass will be able to move freely across the border, no test required.
Border zone residents who are not fully vaccinated will only be able to cross the border for limited reasons, as is the case now.
The commencement of the Public Health and Social Measures linked to vaccination status remains unchanged and will take effect from 17 December 2021.
Queenslanders have done an excellent job keeping our state safe.
As we move toward 80% fully vaccinated, nominating a time and date for reopening gives everyone certainty to book flights and accommodation and make plans to visit loved ones.
