Update 1/07/2020 -

According to the South Australian Police and authorities, essential travelers must apply for an Essential Traveller status under the category of "cross border community member category". This is new.

You can APPLY ONLINE HERE And read more information from the South Australia Police HERE And read more information from the SA Government HERE

From the SAPOL website:

"If you are travelling into South Australia, by road or via the Adelaide airport, you need to complete the cross border pre-approval form at least 72 hours prior to your arrival.The process will speed up the border crossing process and provide certainty for you about any restrictions that may apply before reaching the border."

In a bid to stop further virus outbreaks amidst easing of restrictions, the South Australian Government has issued specific instructions for essential travelers in the transport and freight category.

As of Monday 11th May, a record must be kept of close contacts for a 14 day period FROM the date of arrival into SA. If a Carrier is in SA for less than 14 days, they must record close contacts for the period that they were in SA.

Thanks to the National Road Transport Association, they have provided a succinct list of critical information:

What is considered a close contact? A person is a close contact of another person if they are in the company of the other person:

  1. Within an enclosed space for a period of 2 hours or longer; or

  2. Within 1.5 metres of the other person for a period of 15 minutes or longer.

What do you need to record?

  1. The name and phone number or other contact details of the close contact and the location at which the close contact occurred; or

  2. If the details are not known and it is not reasonably practicable to obtain those details—the time during which and location at which the close contact occurred.

What must you do? The records must:

  1. Be retained for a period of 28 days from the end of the period for which the records must be kept.
