Has anyone heard if WA will shut its border to QLD when the latter lets in VIC & NSW residents in Dec? We’re due to fly from WA to QLD for Xmas. Can’t see any mention of this issue in the recent press.
I think plenty will try this but those getting caught will get the demon treatment.Its a tough one but given on Dec 17 (or earlier) someone could very easily go MEL/SYD -> BNE -> PER and enter with no quarantine versus having to do quarantine if they flew direct - then by the hermit kingdom's rules that would be a defcon 10 breach....
So technically they would have to shut the border to QLD as well (Again).
It is going to be very messy for WA and anyone trying to get there.
Now if SA and TAS jumps on board the new NSW/VIC/ACT/QLD 'Christmas alliance', WA will truly be cut off from everyone.
And this is why I expect testing on arrival won't disappear too quickly.Please, do you have a PDF editor ?

Rapid on arrival is preferable to PCR and isolate until clear. I think it's likely there'll be a transitional arrangement of some sort, and fair point that it will probably not last long. But I do think Mark will be looking to 'monitor' the covid coming in, to some extent. And then isolate/HQ if you test positiveYou think they will put in rapid on arrival?
I think it will all be shoved in the too hard / unenforceable bucket pretty quickly and requirement will simply be double vaxxed (amongst the Christmas alliance states).
WA who honestly knows.
I suggest you cut CBR and MEL. If you are honest on your G2G application, you will be heading to home quarantine otherwise.It means that I may be able to do my trip to LRE in December after all - but including visiting friends in CBR on the way back is moot.
Routing currently is PER-BNE-LRE-BNE-CBR-MEL-PER.
Thinking whether to re-jig it now or wait a couple of weeks.

I’m pretty sure I will be cancelling the visit to MEL in January as neither my son (for work) or myself (another trip via CNS) have the tIme available to quarantine on return home.
(For information to others, the G2G application has to upload a driver’s licence or similar showing residential address, so you cannot use a friend’s address in a low risk states.)
Sorry but I think you are delusional if you think you are going to fly from Canberra to Perth and walk out a free person in WA come January.
i don’t think that. I was about to cancel but all I’m saying is that I’ll wait a little longer just to see what does play out.

I see some appeal in on-arrival rapid testing as an alternative to slamming shut the QLD/SA/NT/TAS borders, when they reopen to NSW/VIC.
