Help & InformationCOVID-19
Protect yourself and others
Whether you are travelling, transiting or visiting the airport, remember to protect yourself and others.
You can do this by wearing a mask on flights, around the airport and anywhere else you can't physically distance to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Stay up-to-date with vaccinations and stay home if you’re unwell.
Our airline customers also have methods to keep travellers safe and to find out more we encourage you to contact the airline you’re flying with.
The most important thing to avoid catching any virus, be it coronavirus, the flu or the common cold, is to wash your hands and avoid touching your face.
Flying through Melbourne
We know some people may feel a little uncertain about air travel, which is why we have taken extra steps to make you feel safe on your journey through the airport.
There are now hand sanitiser units located in check-in, along each concourse (walk-to-gate), in all of our bathroom facilities and food courts. We have also installed disinfectant wipes in domestic and international departures.
To minimise crowding we have placed visual aids on the ground in busy areas such as security screening and check-in, plus we have carefully spaced out seating to support physical distancing.
We’re also working closely with our retailers and contractors to ensure hygiene measures are consistent with government advice.
There is no vaccination, quarantine, permit, or testing requirement to enter Victoria.
You should check COVID-19 information for the state or territory you’re coming from before leaving, to make sure you meet their requirements.
Each Australian state or territory has its own requirements that you will need to comply with:
- New South Wales
- Australian Capital Territory (ACT)
- Northern Territory
- South Australia
- Western Australia
COVID-19 testing facility
We do not have a COVID-19 PCR testing facility on site. If your travel destination requires a PCR test, please ensure you complete a test before arriving at Melbourne Airport.
