In accordance with UK government testing requirements, you are responsible for organising your own COVID-19 test.

Be prepared for your plans to change

COVID-19 poses a risk to all travellers. A new COVID-19 variant may cause countries to further restrict travel or introduce new rules at short notice. Make sure you regularly check airline information boards for any transport changes which may delay your journey to or from Australia

If you test positive for COVID-19, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative. You may also need to seek treatment there.

Plan ahead and make sure you:

  • can access money
  • understand what your insurance will cover
  • can make arrangements to extend your stay and be away for longer than planned

Travel in Australia

There are fairly regular flights between States and Territories within Australia. However, these are prone to cancellation COVID dependent. If you need to travel, book in advance and have funds set aside to cover alternative travel should your original arrangements fall through.

Travel between and within some States and Territories within Australia may be restricted. Restrictions can change at short notice and could disrupt travel plans. You should check individual States and Territory websites for the latest information, including on whether you need to apply for an exemption to cross borders or need to self-isolate on arrival.

Travelling to your international airport

As long as you hold a confirmed booking for the international flight, you may travel between Australian states and territories by air to transit. To cross state borders, you may need an exemption if state borders are closed. You will need to stay within the airport for the duration of your transit, or if transiting overnight, you may be taken to mandatory quarantine for the duration of your transit or may need to self-isolate in a hotel. There may also be limits on transit times. Given the fast changing situation, you should check State and Territory websites for the latest information.


Commercial flights remain available between the UK and Australia. Schedules are more limited than usual due to coronavirus restrictions, and are subject to change at short notice. You should check individual airline websites and contact your airline or tour operator directly for the latest information on all routes, including restrictions around transits and health measures put in place by airlines and at airports.

Some airlines have mandatory pre-departure PCR COVID-19 testing and vaccination requirements. You should contact your individual airline for further information. You can find information on where you can get tested on Australia’s Health Direct webpages.

All passengers (with the exception of children under certain ages) and air crew must wear masks on flights and in airports.
