Testing and Border requirements


All workers, who have been in a hotspot in the 14 days prior to entering the NT, must:

  • Have a COVID-19 test in the 72 hours prior to travel
  • Quarantine after the test and only travel if the test result is negative
  • Follow the testing regime outlined in the CHO directions.

All persons that provide services to workers in quarantine are required to follow the requirements in the Chief Health Officer Directions for testing of quarantine workers. (attach the Procedure for COVID-19 testing of quarantine workers as authorised by the CHO – PDF only)

A person who provides services for a worker who is required to quarantine under any of the CHO directions is classified as a quarantine worker and must undergo a regime of testing as required by the CHO Directions. For example a person who transports a worker to their place of quarantine must have a COVID-19 test on day 3, 7 and 12 after they performed this duty.

Border Entry Requirements

Each time a worker enters the NT they must complete a Border Entry Form. If they have been in a hotspot in the 14 days before arriving in the NT, they must show evidence of a valid letter of exemption under a COVID-19 Management Plan.
