Queensland border declaration system returns tomorrow

Queensland will reintroduce strong border measures, to ensure no one from the newly declared hotspot in NSW is able to sneak in undetected.

From 1.00am tomorrow (Saturday December 19), border declaration passes will return for anyone flying into the Sunshine State from Sydney.

Police will be meeting every arriving flight at all airports to ensure that all passengers comply. It’s understood 52 flights are arriving today alone.

Anyone who’s recently travelled from Sydney’s Northern Beaches and arrives today will be issued a quarantine order to get tested and isolate for two weeks.

While anyone flying in from tomorrow will be forced into two weeks hotel quarantine at their own expense.

The state government announced the changes this morning, with Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk saying the risks are just too great.

“We have come too far and sacrificed too much to risk going backwards,” the Premier said.

“We can’t afford to undo all that good work.”

Road checkpoints are not being brought in at this stage, but police will continue to conduct random checks of traffic coming through.

Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski says police will be ensuring compliance.

“As of 0100 hours, we return to our border declaration pass system. If you’re coming out of the hot spot, you need a border declaration pass to enter Queensland and you’ll be required to go into mandatory self-paid hotel quarantine for 14 days from the time you enter Queensland.

“With respect to our road borders, we’re – they remain open, we’ll be doing a random checking of the vehicles that come through those areas based on whether we think we need to interpret them, for instance, New South Wales plates, hire cars and the like, there will be messaging for people coming into the state, advising them what they need to do when they get here.

“Through our compliance checking, following up and making sure they’re doing the quarantining and if necessary take the appropriate action to enforce that,”

We’re going backwards because you government are allowing people to come in from overseas, grow a brain and stop it altogether!

Well said Trevor theses people just care about money. Keep the borders closed . They it got to see what is happening in Europe and the rest of the world. The UK being a prime example. They should get rid of that NSW Premier she’s already done enough with her lies and denials how convenient how she can’t remember certainly things and manages to get away with all the garbage she pulled and still be in her position. She carried on a big b****ing session till she got her own way till she got the border open and now the CV is starting to spread again. The woman can’t even look after her own state but she got that border open and the covid is on the move again. How much was there a cover up on the figures the NSW government have pulled just to get there own way. Miss innocent seems to be having more things found out about her miss doing as the days go on put someone in who is completely transparent and knows what they’re doing

It’s all about money my friend

plan dem ic everyone knows where this come from and why.

So I can drive into QLD without issue unless I get stopped by random police.
Happy days 1000s coming in everyday, chances are all will be ok.
Fly in and have to go into mandatory 14 day quarantine @ $4000.
I know what I’ll be doing.

The final duplication of the Pacific Highway was officially opened by the PM and NSW Premier this week.

Newcastle to Gold Coast: 7 hours driving or less.

Sydney to Brisbane: under 9 hours driving or less.

Why fly and face quarantine, most likely drive straight through.

My son left Melbourne on his way to QLD for a 2 week vacation on the Sunshine coast, driving. After 900km of driving he entered NSW and was told to keep driving and be out of NSW before 1:am today, otherwise he will be required to quarantine for 2 weeks. He did 1800km in 18 hrs. Dangerous request from these absolute stupid politicians
