Road border checkpoints close

07 February 2021

As Australia works to successfully control the spread of COVID-19 across the country, road border control points across the Northern Territory will cease operations immediately. Airport checkpoints will remain in place.

Entry conditions to the Northern Territory remain the same, with all arrivals including returning residents required to complete an online border entry form prior to arrival. The form can be found here.

It is the responsibility of all travellers to the Northern Territory to familiarise themselves with our entry requirements and to keep up to date with declared hotspots.

If and when future hotspots are declared, travellers will still be required to follow the directions of the Chief Health Officer (CHO) and undertake mandatory supervised quarantine.

The infringement penalty for failing to abide by the CHO Directions issued under section 56 of the Public and Environmental Health Act 2011 is $5,056 for an individual and $25,280 for a business.
