Can I travel for work?

People should avoid all non-essential travel for work and keep up to date with confirmed Coronavirus case locations so they can be avoided.

Approving managers need to consider the risk level of travelling versus the service delivery and operational outcomes that will be achieved by the travel. Any bookings made in advance should be reconsidered again closer to the date of travel and in line with current and changing Australian Government travel advice.

To travel safely, it’s essential to plan your trip before deciding to make your work journey. With hotels being more cautious about accepting guests, if travel within NSW is essential for your role and accommodation is required, please submit your travel requests as early as possible to allow for alternative arrangements to be made if necessary. If you or your people experience problems with travel or accommodation bookings, contact the TSS Service Centre on 133 877.

Please refer to the NSW Government's Travel and Transport Advice page for further guidance on travelling within NSW or interstate.

You can find the full NSW Government-sector advice on international and domestic travel and transport in relation to COVID-19 here.

In March, the Australian Government advised all Australians not to travel abroad and any Australians wishing to return home to do so as soon as possible.
