Those in hotspots like Adelaide, NSW, Victoria and the ACT who are double-dosed will be able to enter the state from 1am on Monday, providing they have tested negative to the virus and take a second test on the fifth day following their arrival.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says fully vaccinated travellers from COVID-19 hotspots can enter from Monday. The announcement came as Queensland inches towards the 80 per cent double vaccinated threshold set for reopening.

International arrivals to Queensland must be fully vaccinated and return a negative test within 72 hours of departure, and will also require a test on arrival as well as 14 days in home or hotel quarantine.

More than 88 per cent of Australians are double dosed, according to the government’s latest figures.
