Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update


Victoria is opening back up in a careful and safe way to deliver on the Australian Government’s National Plan to transition Australia's National COVID-19 response.

At the Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB), our priority is to ensure that event organisers and delegates can plan their event and travel with confidence.

The Victorian Government has developed a Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan which sets the path for the state to open. Under this roadmap, Victoria currently has restrictions in place. Restrictions will be eased when requirements are met and based on Public Health advice.

The Victorian Government has established a permit system for all domestic travel into Victoria. Travellers will need to apply for a permit to enter Victoria from anywhere in Australia. The permit system is based on a traffic light system which allows for areas across Australia to be designated as green, orange or red according to their risk.

The permit system is for both travellers to Victoria and residents of Victoria returning home from interstate travel.

For more information visit our Victorian Travel Permit System page.

The health and safety of our clients, employees and delegates continues to be our top priority.
