NSW travel pass changes following pressure from Tweed Heads

A bit of relief for NSW residents who regularly cross the border, with the government adjusting the border passes.

The NSW travel pass will now last for three days rather than just one, following calls from Tweed locals and politicians.

Previously, those who regularly crossed the border for work were having to fill out a new declaration form every day.

Tweed MP Geoff Provost confirmed the changes on social media late yesterday.

The form stipulates that the person travelling hasn’t recently been to a hotspot interstate.

The change will provide a bit of relief for Tweed residents who have to cross into Queensland for work or school everyday.

However, they also have to fill out a Queensland border pass every two weeks as well.
