NEW as at 28 August: Vaccination & travel registration requirements for authorised workers


The NSW Government has declared that effective 6 September 2021, individuals who are over the age of 16 and live in, or are temporarily staying in a local government area (LGA) of concern, must not leave their LGA for work unless they have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or medical evidence of a medical exemption. Workers must also carry evidence of their vaccination or medical exemption as well as evidence of their current address.


It is very important for you to determine whether you live or work in a LGA of concern and monitor the list closely as the list of LGAs can change at any time.


Further, those who live or work in a LGA of concern or need to travel outside of Greater Sydney, may need to register their travel.  Greater Sydney includes the Blue Mountains.
