Message to industry and stakeholders

  • New electronic travel pass launched

  • New arrangements to secure labour supply during COVID-19 period

  • Preparing workplaces for COVID-19

A new app, G2G PASS, has been launched to provide an efficient way of applying for and demonstrating proof of an exemption before travelling to, or within Western Australia.
The G2G PASS is now live and available for use by industry and the general public, if they are essential workers or are exempt to travel.

Paper-based forms will also remain available for interstate travel and people travelling within WA will be able to apply for manual exemption at the checkpoint if they are carrying the right supporting documentation.
Both exemption methods are free to use.
You’ll find more information on the G2G Pass and answers to Frequently Asked Questions on the WAFIC News website.

To further support businesses utilising working holiday makers and other seasonal labour that may require special arrangements, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) has today published a new document which features the latest updates and information.
This fact sheet covers a range of COVID-19 workplace topics including exemptions from the traditional six-month work limitation with a single employer, travel across regional borders and other visa-related questions and information. Download the fact sheet here. This document will continue to be updated as new information is confirmed.

Further information on preparing your workplace for COVID-19, including information on work health and safety is also available via this Fact Sheet which can be downloaded here.
We encourage members to share this information widely with colleagues.

Warm regards.

Alex Ogg
Chief Executive Officer
