How to apply for a Queensland entry pass

Border Harley-Davidson Road King entry

If you are planning a ride across the Queensland border you will now have to apply online for a new entry pass as the previous pass is no longer valid.

That means Queensland riders wanting to ride to another state and return as well as visitors from other states.

Note that the new Queensland Entry Declaration is only valid for seven days so you may have to reapply every time you cross the border!

However, it takes less than a minute to fill out the questionnaire and I received the confirmation email with attached pass within seconds of submitting my request.Border entry pass

The printed entry pass will allow residents and some non-residents to go back and forth across the border.

It needs to be displayed on your vehicle, otherwise riders can keep it in their jacket pocket and produce it at the border.

Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Gollschewski says you will also have to carry identification which shows your residential address.

You can get your Queensland Entry Declaration by clicking here.

Queensland Police say they are revising their border checkpoint processes to “enable a more seamless crossing for those travelling from states other than Victoria”.

Queensland borders reopen from 10 July 2020 to visitors from all states and territories other than Victoria.

That means riders will still need to fill in the new entry pass.

Queensland can leave and return, but should avoid travelling to Victoria.

It also means riders from all other states and territories can enter Queensland so long as they have not been to Victoria in the past 14 days.

However, some border crossings, such as the Lions Rd may remain closed with a concrete barrier.

They will likely remain that way so long as Queensland’s borders require monitoring by police.

Failure to comply with Queensland’s quarantine directions and border entry restrictions can result in on-the-spot fines of $1334 for individuals and $6672 for corporations.

If you lie on your declaration or are entering Queensland unlawfully, you face a $4003 fine.

Anyone who has travelled from Victoria and enters Queensland from today (3 July), including Queenslanders, will have to quarantine at their own expense for 14 days.

  1. Mark,
    I followed your links and arrived at this questionnaire. I can’t find any way of getting to a request for a pass from here and because I’m not any of those things mentioned under the quote below I get a message saying . What am I doing wrong. I intend to ride to Northern NSW and return this weekend so do I need an actual pass or not to cross the border to and from or not?

  2. I’ve heard from a Qld GC motorcycle Police officer that Tomwin will be open, but Lions & Numinbah doesn’t appear to have the staff to regulate it. 🙁

  3. Thank you Mark for this article, I was wondering how it was to be processed on our one day ride for the 18th July & 4 day run through N.S.W on October long weekend, shades of Berlin 1961 😛
