From Sydney Orange Zone to Melbourne - Test before or after?

The permit says get tested within 72 hours and self isolate till theres a result, can be 1-5 days.
Possible to get tested before flight so I can get earlier result and the self isolation period in melb is shorter?
I give service victoria a call tomorrow anyway but just asking maybe some people are also interested.


  • You must get tested on arrival into Vic and wait until you have your results. The results are 12-24 hours on average in Vic at the moment so I wouldn’t be concerned.

    If you did it before your flight, once you are tested you must stay home until you get your result, therefore you can’t fly if you don’t have your result.

  • before and after —— not or no negotiable no but…
