Northern Territory border restrictions
The Chief Health Officer has granted further directions under the Public and Environmental Health Act 2011 which allow Police to exercise their ability to control the entry of persons into the Territory to minimise the risk of spreading coronavirus and keep Territorians safe.
The NT has secured its borders by introducing a two-week quarantine period for anyone arriving in the Territory, with an exception for those providing goods and essential services during the coronavirus pandemic.
This will not affect lawful trade or commerce, essential activities will not be impacted, and we will continue the supply chain.
From 4:00 pm Tuesday 24 March, all non-essential travellers arriving at the Territory borders will be required to go through a police control checkpoint to verify their medical status and purpose of their travel into the Territory.
They will also be required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival, with penalties for those who do not comply.
All arrivals including Territory residents will be screened and, if deemed a non-essential visitor, would be told to quarantine themselves. Territory Police and the Public Health Unit will ensure compliance and help people access support where needed.
This includes directing people to self-isolate for 14-days once they arrive.
