Approved airports

The Deputy State Controller has prohibited unvaccinated travellers and extreme-risk travellers from arriving at any place within Tasmania other than at approved ports. Both these groups of travellers require approval to enter Tasmania.

Approved airports for these travellers are:

  • Hobart International (Strachan Street, Cambridge)
  • Cambridge Aerodrome (115 Kennedy Drive, Cambridge)
  • Launceston (201 Evandale Road, Western Junction, Launceston)
  • Devonport (Airport Road, Devonport)
  • Burnie (3 Airport Street, Wynyard)
  • King Island (Morrison Avenue, Loorana)
  • Flinders Island (122 Palana Road, Whitemark)
  • Smithton Airport (347 Montagu Road, Smithton)
  • Bridport Airport (Bridport Road, Bridport)
  • Strahan Airport (Macquarie Heads Road, Strahan)
  • St Helens Aerodrome (Aerodrome Road, Stieglitz)
  • Barnbougle Airstrip (425 Waterhouse Road, Bridport)

People who are subject to quarantine in a government-managed quarantine facility must not arrive at King Island or Flinders Island. This is because there are no government-managed quarantine facilities on these islands.

See Travelling to Tasmania’s islands for more information.

Approved maritime entry points

Unvaccinated and extreme risk travellers whose vessel is arriving from outside Tasmanian waters must only arrive at approved maritime entry points.

The approved maritime entry points for unvaccinated travellers are:

Bell Bay Bridport Burnie Currie

These travellers may only arrive at a place outside the above approved maritime entry points if they have prior approval from the Deputy State Controller, or if it is an emergency.

In an emergency, the unvaccinated person disembarking must immediately report their updated information to the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738.
