Service updates - COVID 19

NSW/Vic border closures

New restrictions now apply at border crossings, with the border zone now significantly smaller.

If you’re still eligible, you can apply for a new permit containing a QR code.

You can check whether your address falls within the newly established border restrictions by visiting the Service NSW website. If eligible, you can apply via the same site. 

Border zone residents who obtain a permit will only be able to cross into the other side of the NSW-Victorian border zone to:

  • go to work attend an education institution if they can’t work or learn from home
  • obtain medical care, supplies or health services.

Remote community category 

The ‘remote community resident’ category has now been updated on the Service NSW website.

Residents in exempt remote communities can travel across the border for essential goods. You can see the list of remote communities here. If your community is on the list, you can apply for a permit here.
