Border restrictions

New South Wales has temporarily shut its border with Victoria only.

As the head of an organisation employing critical service workers, the CEO must apply on behalf of the employee in a non-border region (not in the border region), you may be eligible to register for border entry permits for your workers, providing the service is: 

  • highly specialised
  • not available locally in the same, or substantially the same form
  • not able to be provided remotely

If you're the client of a self-employed critical service worker and receiving their service, you are also able to register for a border entry permit for them.

Note: The employer, or the client (if applicable), will need to certify that the work being carried out is highly specialised and can only be done by the particular worker(s).

Note: If you reside in the border region and are only providing critical services within the border region, you do not need to register (see further below for border regions).

What you need for a non-border application

  • a MyServiceNSW Account
  • 2 identity documents (such as Australian driver licence, Medicare card, Australian passport)
  • contact details including email and phone
  • business name and ABN (if applicable)
  • details of the worker(s) employment
  • the type of business

How to Register

  1. Select the 'Register online' button.
  2. Log in or create a MyServiceNSW Account
  3. Enter the required identity details into the online form.
  4. Your identity will be verified.
  5. Follow the prompts to complete the form.
  6. Review and complete your registration.

If your registration is approved:

  1. You will be emailed a copy of the registration code(s).
  2. You must then contact the worker(s) you listed in your registration form and give them their individual registration code. The worker can then complete their border entry permit application and enter their code when prompted.

** Please note the quarantine requirements will be stated on your permit. It is not currently advised until your permit is approved.
