Interstate arrivals

QR code check-in

COVID Safe Check-In is South Australia's QR code check-in system.

All travellers requiring the app should download the mySAGOV app from Google Play or the App Store before travelling to South Australia.

You are required to do the COVID-Safe Check at:

  • Public and Private hospitals,
  • Disability care facilities, and
  • Residential Aged Care Facilities.

If you do not have a smartphone, you must provide you can complete a manual check-in.

Special provision relating to COVID-19 cases

A person (other than an arrival who is fleeing domestic violence) who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 must not enter South Australia until the period for which they would have been required to isolate if in South Australia has elapsed.

Travelling interstate

If you want to travel from South Australia to another state, check the rules of the state you are travelling to before you leave. Not all state travel arrangements are reciprocal.

Interstate COVID-19 travel information

The Healthdirect COVID-19 Restriction Checker also links to each state's travel restrictions.

International arrivals

All people travelling in and out of Australia should be aware of Australian Government requirements for international travellers.

More information is available on the Department of Health's website.

On arrival to SA, all travellers (vaccinated or unvaccinated) must:

  • undertake a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) or PCR Test on arrival and quarantine until they have taken the test
  • Check your symptoms for 14 days following your arrival.

While international travellers will be able to arrive in South Australia with the above conditions, they will still be subject to vaccination requirements under other Directions (e.g. only people over the age of 12 who have received a full course of a COVID-19 vaccine are allowed to enter high risk settings.).

Note: If you have not completed a course of a COVID-19 vaccine approved or recognised by the TGA (i.e. had one dose of 2 dose course), you will be classified as an unvaccinated traveller.

Travelling overseas

Australian citizens and permanent residents aged 12 and over who are fully vaccinated with an approved or recognised COVID-19 vaccine can leave Australia without needing an outwards travel exemption. All children aged under 12 years count as fully vaccinated for travel purposes.
