Step Two:            After Pass is granted get paperwork (a border pass doesn’t mean you are guaranteed entry without supporting documents).

Obtain paperwork from the business in QLD requesting the service who is declaring the person is essential as no one else can fill the role.

 

The business requesting you should also supply a health plan to minimise the spread of COVID-19. Click here for the QLD government template but a QLD business may already have an existing plan in place they can give you.

 

If the person has been travelling around before entry to QLD have a schedule of where they have been over the last 14 days (click here for the 14 Day Close Contact form), it is generic so please make changes, put logo, etc)

 

Entry will be dependant on the Officer at the border so ensure you have as much documentation as possible.

 


We have confirmed that all states have agreed that agriculture and suppliers of essential services to agriculture will be categorised as essential services.
