Delays at Oodla Wirra checkpoint

There are currently lengthy delays being experienced at the Oodla Wirra border checkpoint for travellers coming in to SA from NSW via broken Hill and surrounds. This delay is due to travellers not filling out a Cross Border Travel Registration prior arriving at the checkpoint.

All travellers coming to South Australia must still complete a Cross Border Travel Registration, irrespective of where they are travelling from.

You should aim to complete the cross border travel registration form at least 7 days before you leave, regardless of where your travel begins. If you are applying for Essential Traveller categories (when relevant), please attach relevant documents to assist with assessment and determination.

Travellers must complete a separate Cross Border Travel Registration for each person in the travelling party including all children. People will experience delays on arrival if they have not completed an application for each person. Please remain patient, police are working hard to clear the back log of traffic.
