All travellers coming to South Australia must complete the Cross Border Travel Registration form on the SA Police website prior to their travel.

Before you travel

Check the current SA border restrictions.

If you are planning travel to SA, aim to complete the Cross-Border Travel Registration form at least 7 days before you leave, regardless of where your travel begins. If you are applying for essential traveller categories (when relevant), please attach relevant documents to assist with assessment and determination.

All travellers should download the mySA GOV app from Google Play or the App Store prior to travel to South Australia. COVID Safe Check-In is required at most shops and establishments in SA.

Arriving in SA

Self Check-in

Travellers will now receive an email from South Australia Police that requests that they complete a 'Self Check-in'. This will “check” them in as arriving in South Australia.

Travellers will either declare that they have arrived, or will be arriving in South Australia as per the date declared on their Cross Border Travel Registration.

The email from South Australia Police will arrive on the day you are expected to arrive in South Australia.

Arriving at Adelaide Airport

Travellers entering South Australia by plane must wear a face mask (covering mouth and nose) at all times when on the plane or present at any airport.

Travellers who arrive by plane are required to use the COVID Safe Check-In to scan a QR code specific to the Adelaide Airport immediately after their arrival. For travellers who do not have a smartphone, they must provide their relevant contact details to a person authorised or required to collect such contact details.

QR code check-in

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

All travellers should download the mySA GOV app from Google Play or the App Store prior to travel to South Australia and are required to use the COVID Safe Check-In whenever they enter a business or premises displaying an approved QR code. You do not need a mySA GOV account to use the check-in feature of the app.

For travellers who do not have a smartphone, they must provide their relevant contact details to a person authorised or required to collect such contact details.
