Covid-19 SA Border Requirements - Service Operators, 1 December
Tuesday, 1 December 2020
Information for Commercial Transport and Freight Services
1 December 2020
From today, 1 December 2020, the Emergency Management (Cross Border Travel No 20) (COVID-19) Direction 2020 comes into effect
Commercial Transport & Freight Service operators are no longer required to have a COVID-19 test before entering SA if arriving from a low community transmission zone.
Victoria has been declared a Low Transmission Zone.
Road Border Entry Requirements
All Commercial Transport and Freight Service operators into South Australia are still required to complete a cross border registration form at least 72 hours prior to arrival. Those who completed Essential Traveller cross border registrations are NOT required to update their cross border status and can still travel on their current approvals.
Maritime Crew - Requirements Updated
The Direction notes some changes for Maritime crew arriving into South Australia from overseas. Cross Border Travel Direction No 20, Clauses 7 and 8 define the requirements. Maritime crew are deemed not to arrive if they do not disembark the vessel. A crew member who has been on a vessel within the preceding 14 days, with no one else embarking, is cleared to disembark providing they submit to a COVID-19 test within 48 hours with a negative result and is cleared to disembark by a Human Biosecurity Officer for SA. If the conditions noted cannot be met either through arrival on a vessel, or an aircraft, the crew member must reside and remain, quarantined and segregated from others, at a location determined by an Authorised Officer for a 14-day period starting at the time of their arrival. No person may embark a vessel that has arrived in SA before it is cleared by a Human Biosecurity Officer without wearing PPE as approved by the Department of Health and Wellbeing.
Fact sheets, linked below, have been provided for the Maritime industry to detail;
- An overview of Australia’s requirements for maritime crew, with information to state and territory websites for specific maritime exemptions.
- Updates to PPE recommendations for marine pilots.
