WESTERN AUSTRALIA'S BORDER ARRANGEMENT
WA is in a safe and sensible controlled border arrangement, based on public health advice.
Interstate travel is permitted into and around WA, depending on where travellers have come from and who they’ve had contact with in the 14 days prior to travel. They are also subject to conditions, including completing a G2G PASS declaration prior to entry.
WA’s Chief Health Officer continues to closely monitor community transmission in other states and territories, and will advise the WA Government if any changes to our borders are required to keep Western Australians protected.

Tourists and travellers are not allowed to enter remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia. Fines of up to $50,000 may apply to anyone who breaches the restrictions. Only some Aboriginal communities are excluded from the restrictions. In the Kimberley, only the following communities or their amenities are open to tourists and travellers:
