Exemptions apply for:
If you meet the above exemption criteria, the quickest and simplest way to apply for an exemption is via the G2G PASS online form. Please submit your application at least 3 days prior to travel. By applying online, you can track your application status and will receive an email with the outcome of your application.
Alternatively, you can submit a paper-based exemption application form with supporting documentation.
If you are requesting entry on compassionate grounds or otherwise seeking approval to enter WA, you must not enter WA until you have received approval from WA Police via the G2G PASS app or email. Submitting an application for the reasons above does not constitute approval.
If you apply for approval to travel via the G2G PASS app, a QR code will be generated which can be displayed on a mobile phone and/or through a vehicle window without human contact.
If you apply for an exemption, you must carry your exemption form and proof of its submission when travelling. You may be asked to produce these documents at a checkpoint or by WA Police patrolling the area.
If your exemption category requires further documentation or proof, you must produce this on request. Failure to do so may result in penalties including imprisonment or a fine of up to $50,000 for individuals or $250,000 for organisations.
