Australia is currently responding to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Western Australian Government has declared a State of Emergency in response to COVID-19 and has developed a WA Roadmap to stopping the spread of coronavirus in our state. 

The roadmap has been developed in conjunction with National Cabinet principles and is based on the best health advice.

Due to the world-leading response to COVID-19 in Western Australia, on Saturday 27 June the state entered Phase 4 of its plan, removing all restrictions.

roadmapBusiness Events Perth is following the advice of 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.

WA State Borders

The Western Australian State borders are closed to all interstate and international visitors excluding essential services.

The removal of the state’s hard border is planned as part of phase 6 in the WA recovery plan, but no date has been set.

The WA hard border will only be removed when the WA Chief Health Officer is confident the spread of infection is controlled in the eastern states.

International travel to Australia

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

From midnight Saturday 28 March, all travellers arriving in Australia via air or seaports must undergo 14 days isolation in the city of their arrival.
