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 PCR or Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) 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.
