We know travel instructions can be confusing at the moment, so we've brought together some important information.
When you’re ready to fly, we’re ready too.
In co-operation across the Australian aviation industry, we've established a Government approved COVID safe flying plan including physical distancing and enhanced hygiene measures. We all share in the responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation as we all adapt to these new measures.
What you need to know before flying into Launceston
- If you’re travelling from a ‘low risk’ area you must complete the Tas e-Travel form, and this applies to Tasmanian residents returning home. You can complete the form online via the following link, https://arrivals.dpipwe.tas.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx
- Travellers from ‘medium’ or ‘high risk’ parts of the country need to complete a G2G Pass, including Tasmanian residents returning home. You can complete the G2G Pass online, https://g2gpass.com.au/ The G2G pass will need to be shown to Biosecurity staff on arrival at Launceston Airport.
To find out if you’re coming from a low, medium or high risk area please visit the Tasmanian Government’s website, https://coronavirus.tas.gov.au/travellers-and-visitors/coming-to-tasmania
Our new arrivals process can add an extra 15-30 minutes to your journey, so please be patient and keep this in mind if you need to arrange transport.
If you’re travelling on a Tas e-Travel pass, you will display a QR code to Biosecurity staff when you land into Launceston Airport, plus you will be asked a set of questions.
G2G pass holders will also be processed by Biosecurity staff on arrival. Tasmanian Health & Human Services staff will then take your temperature at the airport.
We have priority processing for travellers that require extra assistance, for anyone with mobility issues and families traveling with children.
Safe travels and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

If you plan to travel to Tasmania from Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory, Western Australia and the Northern Territory from 26 October onwards, do not complete a G2G PASS application.
Anyone entering Tasmania will be required to register their travel and contact details via the Tas E-Travel online system, not G2G.
The Tas E-Travel system will be available from 23 October via Tasmanian Government’s website, coronavirus.tas.gov.au
Registrations will be accepted a maximum of 3 days prior to arrival. If you have already applied via G2G for travel from a low-risk jurisdiction from 26 October 2020, you will be required to resubmit your details via the Tas E-Travel system.

From 9pm on Friday 20 March 2020, only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia.
All travellers arriving in Australia must undertake a mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities (for example, a hotel), in their port of arrival.
If you arrive in Australia as a non-exempt traveller, your visa may be cancelled and you will either be returned to your home country when flights are available or placed in an alternative place of detention for a quarantine period.
These arrangements are under constant review as the COVID-19 situation evolves, and will be revised based on updated health advice.
