Make Sure You Have
Your G2G Pass
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I enter Western Australia?
On 14 November, WA transitioned to a safe and sensible controlled border arrangement, based on the latest public health advice.
G2G PASS is an online, mobile application that allows you to register for travel prior to entering WA. All travellers into WA need to complete a mandatory G2G PASS registration and declaration prior to entry. The G2G PASS process will require you to declare where you have been in the 14 days before entry into WA, whether you have any COVID symptoms, and whether you have knowingly had contact with people from “low risk” states and territories (currently Victoria and NSW) or “medium risk” states and territories (currently South Australia).
When your registration is processed, you will receive your G2G PASS via email, stipulating any terms and conditions that apply, depending on where you have been for the 14 days before entry into WA. These may include the requirement to quarantine and undergo health checks.
At your point of entry, WA Police will ask to scan your G2G PASS. To help make your journey easier, you should carry a physical copy of your G2G PASS or download the G2G PASS mobile application where a digital copy of the pass is stored.
Do I still need a G2G PASS to enter WA?
Yes. Anyone travelling from a medium risk, “low risk” or “very low risk” state or territory needs to complete a mandatory G2G PASS registration and declaration before travelling.
