- As a NSW based builder, you can still enter Queensland to work;
- But you need to apply for an entry pass
The QLD Government has implemented restricted entry to Queensland from 12:01am on 26 March 2020. Anyone who arrives in Queensland (including by road) from another State from this date must self-quarantine for 14 days, unless they are an “exempt person”.
Construction is considered a critical service and therefore building and construction workers are exempt. But if you are a NSW resident you are required to to apply for an entry pass.
The entry pass online application is an easy process and only takes a minute. Choose 'Specialist skills worker' in the category list.
Once complete a 'Queensland Border Pass' document will be emailed to you. This must be displayed on your passenger-side visor, windscreen or dashboard.
Queensland police and other emergency officers under the Public Health Act 2005 will be responsible for enforcing the measures.
