After two years of isolation from the outside world, Queensland has finally set a date for reopening! The state will reopen at 1 AM on December 13th as the state moves towards the 80% double vaccination milestone earlier than expected. Originally the opening date was pencilled in for December 17th.

Your second dose should have been administered no earlier than 7 days to be considered fully vaccinated. This has been reduced from 14 days.

Here’s what we know:

  • Fully vaccinated travellers can arrive from interstate hotspots by road or air without quarantine but must test negative to COVID-19 in the previous 72 hours.
  • Regardless of vaccination status, all arrivals must get another COVID-19 test on day 5 after arriving in Queensland.
  • International arrivals must be fully vaccinated, return a negative test within 72 hours of departure, and must do 14 days of home or hotel quarantine.
  • Fully vaccinated border zone residents with a border pass will be able to move freely across the border; no test is required.
  • People arriving in Queensland from hotspots who are not fully vaccinated must arrive by air and hotel quarantine for 14 days at their own expense.
  • Border zone residents who are not fully vaccinated will only be able to cross the border for limited reasons, as is the case now.
