The improved border pass system was introduced on Tuesday, 10 November to streamline the processing of passes at border checkpoints and strengthen compliance measures.

The streamlined online border application process removes confusion around different pass types by auto-selecting passes for applicants based on the information they provide.

Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said the revamped system was designed to streamline processes, while ensuring compliance with border restrictions was maintained.

“This is an automated system to remove confusion and assist in speeding up processing at the border,” Deputy Commissioner Gollshewski said.

“The new improvements address concerns and give a very clear message that if you don’t have a valid border pass, you will not be granted access into Queensland.

“We urge everyone coming into Queensland to plan ahead and make sure you apply for a border pass before your travel.”

Border declaration pass applicants need to upload supporting documents online for validation, which may take up to three business days to be processed.

Travellers should bring their hard copy documents to border control checkpoints while the new system is being phased in.
