There are currently no entry and quarantine requirements or travel restrictions for Queensland’s remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. If you have visited the Greater Brisbane Area since 2 January 2021, and have returned home to your community (i.e. in another area of Queensland) you will also need to follow the directions for the easing of Greater Brisbane Area restrictions

Queensland follows the Roadmap to easing Queensland’s restrictions.

The Chief Health Officer may re-introduce restrictions if an outbreak of COVID-19 occurs in a community. Decisions will be made by the Chief Health Officer based on public health conditions for each community and in consultation with local leaders.

Roadmap to easing access restrictions in Queensland's remote communities

The Queensland Government has worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership in remote communities to implement a three-stage plan to safely ease restrictions in designated areas (PDF, 124 KB). Under this plan, all remote communities have moved to restrictions in line with the rest of Queensland.
