Australia to scrap Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD)

Digital Passenger Declaration

Travellers arriving in Australia will no longer need to complete a digital passenger declaration under changes to come into effect this week.

Border restrictions enforced in response to the pandemic will be dropped this coming week, with arriving passengers no longer required to declare their vaccination status or obtain a travel exemption.

The much-maligned Digital Passenger Declaration (DPD) required people entering Australia to provide their contact details as well as declare their vaccination status, where they had been in the past 14 days, and commit to following quarantine and testing requirements.

The good news is that having to complete a DPD will end on Wednesday 6 July.
