Victorian woman charged with lying on Qld border pass

A Victorian woman has been charged after allegedly lying on her border declaration form to get into Queensland.

The 51-year-old arrived this week and had claimed to be entering the state for essential work purposes.

Police reviewed the woman’s claims and discovered they were untrue.


Officers tracked the women down to a house in Gympie on Saturday.

She has now been charged with one count of failing to comply with a COVID-19 border direction and will front court in November.

She has also been escorted off to hotel quarantine.

It’s understood the woman lied about her reason for being here in order to visit a sick relative.

Police say investigations are continuing.
