Cross-border travel resumes with NSW, ACT
Fully vaccinated Victorians will be able to travel to and from NSW and vice versa following the easing of cross-border travel restrictions on November 1.
The changes also apply to NSW and Victoria’s border arrangements with the Australian Capital Territory.
Vaccinated travellers are permitted to enter the ACT for any reason, but will have to apply for an exemption online. They will also need to provide their vaccination certificate.
Unvaccinated residents will still be required to seek an exemption and be subject to stay-at-home orders for two weeks.
