Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Australia is currently responding to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). Business Events Perth is following the advice of our State and Federal government. Our primary concern is to ensure our partners, members and event delegates are aware of the latest travel and gathering restrictions in place in Australia and are taking the best possible precautions to protect themselves from COVID-19.

The Government of Western Australia has declared a State of Emergency in response to COVID-19 and has developed a roadmap, based on National Cabinet principles and health advice.

Due to the world-leading response to COVID-19 in Western Australia, the State is now in Phase 5 of its roadmap, with following restrictions in place:

  • No venue capacity restrictions
  • Contact registers mandatory at all businesses
  • Restricted access to remote Aboriginal communities
  • WA controlled border arrangement (see below)

For more information on current restrictions in Western Australia, see here.

Western Australia State Border

WA is in a safe and sensible controlled border arrangement, based on public health advice. WA’s Chief Health Officer is continuing to closely monitor the situation. More information on the controlled border arrangement is available on

International travel to Australia

Australia’s borders are currently closed to all international destinations. Only Australian citizens, residents and immediate family members can travel to Australia. 

At this stage it is difficult to predict exactly when Australia’s borders will reopen to its key tourism markets around the world. We look forward to welcoming the return of international visitors when the time is right.
