New COVID-19 testing requirements for people travelling from China to Australia

If you’re travelling by plane to Australia from China, including Hong Kong and Macau, on or after 5 January 2023, the Australian Government requires you to undertake a COVID-19 test in the 48 hours before your scheduled departure date.


You should be ready to show evidence of your negative test result when boarding your flight in China. You may also need to show this evidence again when you arrive in Australia.
