This update affects people who are returning from international travel back into South Australia.

An updated Direction has been made which affects people who are returning from international travel back into South Australia.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19 within South Australia State Coordinator, Commissioner Grant Stevens has made a direction under the Emergency Management Act 2004 relevant to International Travellers.

The direction stipulates that all passengers arriving after 0001hrs 29 March 2020 will be directed to accommodation nominated by South Australia Health and remain in quarantine at that location for 14 days from the date of arrival in Australia.

Each State and Territory is implementing similar directions and any South Australian coming into another State or Territory from overseas will be required to remain in quarantine in that State or Territory before returning to South Australia. Upon returning to South Australia, following a period of quarantine in another State or Territory, a further 14 days of self-quarantine will apply in South Australia.

Further restrictions have also been made in relation to essential travellers who arrive from overseas by either boat or aircraft. For example, a flight or boat crew who arrive from overseas into South Australia will be required to self–quarantine at the conclusion of their duties for 14 days or until they leave South Australia, whichever is shorter.

Please go to the full direction to ensure you have sufficient information and detail.
