Melbourne – Sydney flights will be considered “international”

Eligible passengers that have permission to travel to Sydney from Victoria will face enhanced border and quarantine checks to ensure New South Wales entry requirements are met.


Once processed, arriving passengers from Victoria will have to self isolate and quarantine for 14 days at their own expense in an approved hotel selected by the NSW Government,
