Qld border pass system moves online from today

Queensland’s new border pass system comes into effect from today, but there will be a short changeover period for people to get used to the updates.

The new online system hopes to remove confusion in the application process, by automatically selecting the types of pass the applicant needs.

Supporting documents will also need to be uploaded online, and will be verified ahead of the border crossing.


That application process could take up to three days, with police urging applicants to make sure they get online early to get it done in time.

A QR code will then be put on the pass, which can be scanned by police at the border crossing and give them all the information they need.

Old passes are still being accepted, provided they haven’t expired yet.

There’s also a three day changeover period for those who’d still rather use the old pass.

Once the new system is in full effect, police are still urging border crosses to bring hard copies of all their documents just in case of online glitches.

I have a better idea, OPEN the border, delete the checkpoints, that will clear the confusion and really streamline the process!
There are ZERO cases in the wild, there is NO threat to anyone’s health, patmysak won the election, there is no more need for the political games, its over.

See that’s the problem with you’re theory mate, it’s not a political based decision it’s a health safety based decision, no cases mate because people have had their movements curbed, virus doesn’t spread, its not hard just science.

Agreed, but if you want to get into QLD simply tick the correct boxes on the new online form and come on in.
The politicians lie all the time without recourse so why not us?
They have set the example!

Just open the border, and let the economy build again! I dont know one person who voted for this Govt on the basis of feeling “safe” because of border closures. What a load of BS. Streamlined pass, more BS, taking up to 3 days to get approved. The old pass was almost instant. Upload paperwork for the new pass more BS, and up to 3 days to verify- how is this streamlined compared to the old pass? The public hoodwinked again! Just open the border Premier!

I don’t have a scanner so how do I come back over the border??
