COVID-19 UPDATE: Australia remains OPEN to all foreign superyachts and crew rotations

As at: 23/12/2020

Australia has done extremely well to remain largely COVID free within the community, daily cases are being detected in overseas arrivals at increasing rates. Recent outbreaks in the community have been directly traced back to contact with overseas arrivals. The risk of COVID entering Australia is very high if strict quarantine measures are not followed by overseas arrivals.

Superyachts, crew and owners can arrive into Australia but must follow strict 14 days quarantine upon arrival. Time in transit will no longer count towards quarantine due to the risk of chain transmission between those onboard.

Crew or owners flying into Australia will be required to conduct 14 days hotel quarantine. Crew and owners arriving on the vessel can apply to conduct quarantine onboard and the decision for this rests with the local state health authority.

Superyacht Australia supports these strict measures that will prevent our industry from being a source of COVID entering Australia.
