Plan your event in Australia
A few simple steps before take-off will make for a hassle-free business event. In addition to the information provided here, please ensure you are across all applicable government guidance, restrictions, and requirements.
A valid vaccination certificate from a recognised health authority is required to enter Australia. Find out more about requirements at the Department of Health. You must also present your COVID-19 vaccination certificate to the airline staff when checking in for your flight. Check with your preferred airline on their specific requirements.
All passengers on all flights should complete the Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD) before travelling to Australia. You can start a DPD seven days before your flight to Australia, but you can only submit a DPD within 72 hours before your departure. This is because you must provide your health information and declaration within 72 hours before your flight.
The DPD collects critical health information, which helps keep the Australian community and visitors safe.
It’s as simple as:
- Creating an account
- Submitting your declaration
- Showing your summary screen (either hard copy or electronically) with the relevant supporting documentation at airport check-in, before boarding your flight
