Driving and travel plans

Planning a trip these July school holidays? Travel to regional NSW for a holiday is now allowed.

Travelling to or entering NSW from interstate

Under the new public health order, anyone who has been in Victoria within the last 14 days must not enter NSW unless they are exempt or they have a border entry permit.

Returning NSW residents will be required to go into 14 days of self-isolation. There will be provisions in place for residents of border regions, such as Albury-Wodonga.

Learn more about NSW border restrictions or apply for an entry permit.
