GRV participants travelling interstate are reminded to check the DHHS coronavirus website to ensure they comply with the Victorian Government’s current rules regarding interstate travel under the new traffic light system.
All persons travelling into Victoria, both travellers and Victorian residents, MUST obtain a permit prior to entering Victoria.
If you’re coming from a:
Red zone: if you have visited a red zone in the past 14 days, you will not be allowed to enter Victoria without an exception or exemption. You will be turned away if you try and enter the land border without one. If you attempt to enter via an airport or seaport you will be fined up to $4,957.
Orange zone: you can apply for a permit. You will need to take a coronavirus test within 72 hours after arriving in Victoria, and quarantine until you get your results.
Green zone: you can apply for a permit. No isolation or testing rules apply, but you should watch out for symptoms.
Greater Sydney and Greater Brisbane have been declared a Red Zone by the Chief Health Officer which means anyone traveling to the NSW or Qld capitals will NOT be allowed to return to Victoria.
