Queensland has released its plan to begin reopening its borders, but everything will depend on people turning out to get vaccinated.

It’s expected that 70 per cent of eligible Queenslanders will be fully vaccinated by November 19, and possibly sooner.

When that happens, interstate arrivals will be allowed in under strict conditions.

Those seeking to enter Queensland will have to be fully vaccinated, arrive by air, and have returned a negative COVID-19 test in the previous 72 hours. They must also commit to 14 days in home quarantine.

Those restrictions will ease when 80 per cent of eligible Queenslanders are fully vaccinated. That’s expected to happen on December 17, or before.

When that happens, interstate arrivals will be allowed for fully vaccinated people by road and by air, without any requirement to quarantine. But arrivals must have returned a negative test in the previous 72 hours.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said those dates would be brought forward if the state hit the 70 and 80 per cent vaccination targets earlier.
