The COVID pandemic has changed the way we all were living our lives and conducting our essential commutes and travelling. One of the major effects the pandemic has bought is the changes and delay in the travelling and relocating plans of people across the globe. The travel and relocation plan of people in Australia too have been affected by the precautionary restrictions imposed by the governments.

If you too have a plan to move to Victoria from New South Wales (NSW), then we have compiled a list of important things you need to know. Let us take a look at them:

1. Border Permit

If you have plans to move to Victoria then, you need border permission as advised by the Victorian government. You may need to spend 14 days in quarantine upon your arrival as well. You can apply for the permit here:https://www.service.vic.gov.au/services/border-permit/home

2. Check the Zones

The Victorian government has divided the Australian territories in different colour-based zones. Depending upon the zone you are coming from, different restrictions will be imposed on you. You can check the colour of your zone and restrictions here:https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/victorian-travel-permit-system

3. Proof of Residence

While crossing the border, it is mandatory to carry the proof of residence i.e. a photo i.d. and proof of residence. It is as important as the border permit. Also carry your new home proof of residence to avoid any delay in the relocation.

4. Exemption approval

NSW residents are also allowed to apply for exemptions for obtaining a permit in certain cases. If you must receive or accompany a dependent who is to receive essential medical care or other emergency care, you can apply for the exemption to enter Victoria. You can check the rules for exemption here: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/victorian-travel-permit-system
