Requirements to Travel Overseas.

Australia Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD)

Before you start

You may complete your DPD using your web browser on desktop or via your mobile device. Before boarding and on arrival in Australia you may be asked to show your DPD. You should either print a copy of your DPD from the summary screen or ensure you have this available on your mobile device.

Before you travel to Australia you must get a polymerase chain reaction (PCR, or RT-PCR) or other nucleic acid amplification (NAA) test within 3 days of your flight or a medically supervised rapid antigen test (RAT) within 24 hours of your flight to Australia. You must present a negative test result to check-in to your flight.


Currently, most states and territories require you to undertake a COVID-19 test within 24 hours of arrival, although requirements may change from time to time. Additional testing requirements apply in some states and territories. If you do not get tested, you may face serious penalties, including jail time or fines up to $11,000. These requirements may vary so you need to check the requirements on States ( closer to your arrival.

Please bring evidence of COVID-19 testing and your COVID-19 vaccination with you. A DPD is required for all passengers. Parents should complete a DPD for all children 16 years and under.
